Steelhead fishing has been slow on the Chetco

Chetco River - Brookings, OR (Curry County)

Steelhead fishing has been slow on the Chetco, lower Rogue, Elk and Sixes rivers reports Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing. “The action appeared to be picking up early last week, with guides getting four or more a day,” said Martin “By the weekend, catch rates were a fish for every three or four boats. Rain this week may boost the action. The Chetco still has green water in the deeper slots, but is dropping and clearing quickly.”
