Typically the Siletz is an earlier fihsery with the largest bucks of the year showing the third week of August to the second week of sept. Right now all the action is from duck point to ballard acres, with spinner producing the majority of the fish, and herring follwing close behind. Remember current regs are 1 adult a day, 2 total from that system /day. As far as the coho question is conserned, the Siletz is a managment unit that is used as a indicator for the entire coast, and with a bunch of estimated non factual B.S. odfw can keep thier numbers on that river higher on the spawning grounds and there by not have to actually work.

They are ok, cheap but there is better. This time of year I would run the mini extream in chart. green and nickle. Rember, this river fishes sloooowwww. 0.8 mph is almost too fast. While you are there I recomend stopping in chinook bend's bait shop. Pick up some TCO spinners while you are there. The colors they carry are hand picked by myself specifically for this time of year on that river. Good luck and tell Ralph and Jon I said hello.
