|In mid-October, a customer swinging flies for sea-runs hooked the fish of a lifetime, a 35lb chinook on a 4wt and 3x!
||The chances this fish would come to hand were slim and none, but some how Jim beat the odds.
||After 30 minutes, five jumps and lots of cheering from the peanut gallery, we beached the fish! Absolutely amazing, the biggest fish we've ever seen taken on a 4wt by a long way.
||When there weren't Chinook on the line there were plenty of typical fall sea-run cutthroats like this nice Siletz fish.<
|We didn't guide to this fish, but have to show it anyway. Kathy Youngers of Creekside fly shop in Salem boated this enormous 22", 4lb sea-run in Nestucca tidewater. That's a monster.
||Rich Youngers of Creekside took this gorgeous cutt on the same magic days as Kathy took hers. That's good fishing!
||Jesse displays a clients chrome 15" siletz sea-run. 25 fish days were the norm, not the exception
||A beautiful October morning in Siletz tidewater.
