thanks beaver. looks like a drive for salmon at the moment LOL. I just remember living outside of roseburg and heading up to glide and the north umpqua for coho, just now i dunno how the run is on the north.
siuslaw is the river that flows out into florence if im not mistaken. I am rerigging one of my poles with 15 lb powerpro braid that i will probably use for my salmon, downrigger rod. Should be fine for coho and steelies and a hell of a battle for chinook :-D
