Earliest I've ever caught one was Sept. 1st.
Just above tidewater.

Dont get your hopes up with this years run. :(

I start fishing July 4th for fall fish typically. They will be tiding in and out for the next few weeks. Guys up at tillamook are starting to pick up coho off the jetty.

Fall nooks are already being caught on the Columbia river (and tribs)! You can keep them from aug 1-sep 13.

Sorry, I didn't see the coast streams part.

Thought we were talking COASTAL RIVERS and STREAMS...?
Dont think you will see any Fall chinook in any rivers right now until Sept..
And I wouldn't bother fishing until last week in Sept...
Prime time is anytime in October.. November can be decent as well.
If someone knows a coastal river or stream that has Chinook in it let me know! :cool:

Huh.. didn't know Tanner creek was a coastal stream. :think:

The Columbia river fish show up a lot different times than the native coastal Fall chinook run.

Your right Mike, coastal salmon don't show up till later. Columbia and its tribs are different.

The smell of fog and tide water gets my blood pumping. There should be a few fish but the fish in the coastal rivers really start showing up in mid September.

Trapped inside my own mind.
Good lookin spinner.
buuut... anyone that's actualy caught salt fresh chinook on a spinner would know that they absolutely ruin spinners. that spinner is perfectly straight. looks like another AA imaginative story.

Sorry man but this one just doesn't add up at all.
