After 19 long grueling days of salmon fishing this month we finally tagged a couple adult Coho . And they were some beautiful chromed out hens.

excellent, nice job tagging those beauties!

[MENTION=3365]Snopro[/MENTION] this is a good example of why C&R is so rare, it is common to go 5, 10, even 20 days out fishing and not touch a Siltcoos coho, and even if you tie into one early in your day, it can often be the only one you find that day...the only one I have ever released is a 23" coho on opening day 2013 because I did not want to burn a tag spot for a little one that early in the year...

Your wife got the best one! I have determined spending 2 hours a day for Surf Perch is more bang for the buck! Nice fish!

Nice-looking fish Roger that means there are still some fresh ones coming in. I had one right to the boat today and it came loose but my sister tagged out two really nice ones out of her boat. And saw six other fish landed today

I saw you guys behind Booth Island when I was headed south but looked like you headed towards Ada resort/Fiddle Creek...river was moving pretty good, pushed me into the bridge while I was trying to net my 'egg wagon'...

Congratulations on the fish (to everyone who got some at Siltcoos)! Sounds like it's taking some serious effort this year, so probably feels pretty good!

Congrats RD......trolling or casting? (with?) Nice.....Persistence = Victory!
I was trolling into the start of the river but hit shallow weeds, so reeled in and just before the bridge I did a quick cast back and over to shore in a spot likely to hold a fish, she hit just as I got the blade turning...pink Wordens Vibric SST 1/2oz...

It's so nice to hear this every once in a while. Being that it's all relative. I hit Siltcoos a few years ago for days, and zippo, really messed with my head. P.S. Damn good lookin' fishies you two.

You Siltcoosers better hit the lake after this rain event.... ( if still open )

When I worked at Cabelas in Soringfield there was a select few guys who would come in late Novemeber saying the best was ahead?

Good luck, I still want to get out that way sometime when I'm not busy....well..fishing.

yes, it is open to Dec.31 and I tried to get a fishing pass to hit it today between storms but my pass was declined, which almost never happens, so I didn't complain, just chilled...:peace:
