Fishing on the Chetco River

DSC-0330DSC-0327Fishing on the Chetco the past few days has been excellent with a lot of fresh fish pushing through the system. With some of the biggest crowds I’ve seen in quite some time, it didn’t seem to make a difference to the fish. Most boats were averaging six to ten opportunities a day! It would appear that a lot of the hatchery fish have shown up, mixed with a descent amount of wild fish. All the fish we caught were fresh dime bright winter Steelhead! Averaging six to twelve pounds and living up to the reputation of hard pulling Steelhead, the moral of the boat was at a all time high. You can’t beet warm January days for Steelhead fishing but the Pacific Northwest is in desperate need of some heavy precipitation. Looking back on years of weather notes, I’m optimistic that we still have the potential for good rain fall in the last bit of January and through the spring!
I’m turning my attention to newly arrived Winter Steelhead on the Klamath and Trinity rivers in the next few days. For more information give us a call or send us a message and don’t forget that ”Bent rods and big smiles is our quest.”
