According to the books "Fishing in Oregon", and "Complete Angler's Guide to Oregon", there is only a Fall run of Nooks. Which I have actually seen, for myself. But 10 days ago a shop owner in Lincoln City told me that, the Bluebacks are already coming in. Whether those fish would be all of the way up to Elk City, is anyone's guess. Have you considered, instead, of targeting the Siletz for steel?
Yaquina is on plan to start getting hatchery spring chinook under CMP but last I heard, those plantings have not started yet. Siletz has a small run of springers and also summer steelhead, that is your nearest location to chase big fish this time of year. cheers, roger
Thanks for the tips. Probably going to hang around the camp ground and relax just trying to figure out what would be in there. I've fished the fall run down lower it's not to bad but not great. The kids want to take the boat so we might screw around and try for a cut.
