Salmon winding down?

I think the salmon fishing will keep on going for a while anyway.  If it looks like we might have some nice fly water I will post an emergency opening.

I am not fishing this week, I am at our southern estate inAstoria getting together the early winter calendar and getting ready for the Deschutestrip.  Here is a report though. Therivers and creeks are crazy high, there are tons of salmon though and these  facts combineto create decent to good fishing despite poor conditions.  Word is spreading about early winterrun steelhead more to come later in the week.


      You are going to get sick of seeing this guys picture.  Here is John with a hatchery hen Coho.

Moldy Chum, in co-operation with Trout Unlimited is doing aquick online survey on steelhead fishing and management.  Here is a link; only takes a few seconds.
