Lets welcome the fall chinook run! The largest salmon run in the year! Whos gonna go get some great salmon action?
Took the boat out on the Siletz and marked 2 big pods of fish about 7 miles up the river. The groups were about 30 fish a piece. I've heard of a few fish being caught already.....FYI silvers are in at the mouth of the clack. I will be whipping out the blue green rainbow spinner, red and brass, red and white, and chart. green/nickle spinners verry soon. Check out the link and let me know of what you think of the patterns.
Hmm. Did not know that the big bucks head up this early...Kinda thought they all came up at once, as I fish the Clack a lot too, and normally see Eagle Creek start filling up around the end of September or so...Go to know, about the early runners though, gotta key in on bigger fish for now. The lateral line imitation you mention, seems like a pretty legit method to makin them effective. UV paint huh? I like to tip Aero jigs with raw prawn meat because the natural UV will turn on a stubborn fish! Pretty cool stuff dude.
