The Fall Salmon: run was forecast to be a little lower this year. Coho or Silver Salmon are showing up in better numbers than forecast. Fall Chinook will probably be a little lower than normal. As of August 20th I stopped fishing Buoy 10 and am focusing on more local bays like Waldport Bay, and Siletz Bay. The coho season opens again September 2nd and ends when the quota is met. The first 2 weeks of September will probably be your best bet for limiting out on bright fresh salmon, however the farther into the September and early October we go the the more Chinook there will be.

2017 Kokanee Season: Far exceeded my expectations. With numerous 100 fish days out of Green Peter Res of 12"-13" fish. The farther into summer we have gotten the catches are dropping to 40-50 fish days but some fish are in the 15-16" range. I will still run trips until the end of August if you are looking for a fun family event before school starts.

Bottom Fishing: Is always good. Getting limits of Ling Cod is normal. I started running them last year becasue Spring Salmon was so slow and I would rather get a lot of these fish than one or two salmon. I did a DYI out of Newport Oregon with Lunker Junkies T.V. We limited out in about 1.5 hours with 8 ling cod and released about 12 others. The sea bass were really active as well. see the video below.
