Chetco River Salmon Fishing

Chetco River Fishing Guide The fall salmon season on the coast this year was late to get started and ended as soon as it got going. The Chetco River Fishing was way behind schedule this year and didn't get started till after Thanksgiving when the first big rain storms filled the river with some fresh water. Mario Gomez of Ironhead Guide Service was on the scene when the river came into shape and got a few days in before thing got to low and clear. It seemed like the fish made their way into the chetco river in between storms and spawned before anyone new what was going on.
The Smith river fishing was much of the same and no one really knows what happened to the salmon. We seen a few days of fish-able water but the numbers of salmon was not there and the only explanation is the fish got through in low water and did their thing. The smith river hosts some of the largest salmon caught every year and is a beautiful river to fish.

Klamath River Fishing


The fall Chinook fishery on the Klamath and Trinity rivers will be closed for retention of salmon in 2017, so what this means is the Klamath and Trinity rivers will be catch and release only and not closed to angling. To help protect the stocks, ocean salmon fishing will also be closed in the California and Oregon KMZ zones (Klamath Management Zones), which run from Humbug Mt. south to Horse Mt. Visit the CDFW News Feed for more information The fall Chinook seasons on the Smith, Chetco, Rogue, Elk, and Umpqua rivers will not be affected by these closures.
