After big early November rains, bright Chinook were free to enter the river at will, sparking magical fishing There a few days every year when the Oregon Coast rivals Salmon fishing anywhere on the planet. This year mid-November was it, kicking out Chinook like this, almost as fast as you could catch them. Fish consistently averaged 15-20 lbs, but some like this buck, pushed 25.

Throughout November anglers released 95% of Chinook landed, to help preserve this amazing fishery! Small Stream Outfitters uses their Water Ready 3-man custom pontoon boat to access exceptional water previously unavailable. Releasing another Central Oregon Coast Chromer. This sea-lice bright hen was taken on November 11 over 20 miles from the river mouth.
