Will be in Florence visiting in laws Friday to Sunday, so will need to escape, hopefully daily. Thinking of taking the boy after searun cutts if there are any in the system. Spinners and fly rods. Any reports on water/fish conditions lately?

Thanks!

Mike

I have not heard anything about them, not sure if they are in the system yet, seems a little early to me....

lots of people starting to toss big spinners for chinooks OFF the Rhody wall in Florence...should be a good crowd there before and through high tide for sure...

We'll check that out this weekend. If it's jammed we'll go upriver and search for cutts. Hate combat fishing.

I think some folks toss lures for cutts (and chinook later into the Fall) at Bender Landing on the North Fork of the Siuslaw, just not sure the timing of the cutt run.

That's a short drive. We'll give it a shot and report back.

Stopped by Bender Landing but it was crowded. I'm not a big fan of fishing off a small deck with a bunch of drunk guys on it. ;) Tides weren't working in our favour this weekend timing-wise either. Suislaw looks like having a boat is a must. Really really tough access. Saw lots of boats out working.

We trolled Saturday and 3 hours Sunday - 1 jack for 4 rods - Still slow but I saw some big salmon being caught - just not by us.

Hitting the river Saturday morning-does anyone knows how far up the river the salmon are now? Feel free to pm me.

No love for us this Saturday(9/24) trolled for 7 hours and saw only two landed but lots of boat.
that is the report I got also, after the rain we had Friday, I thought nets would be flying all weekend but sounds like Sat. was slow...sunrise high tides coming this week!

On Saturday (9/24) I spent 6 hours trolling herring near the Coast Guard watch tower. Got on the water at 8:50 and headed down river, after seeing a ton of boats fishing towards Cushman. We had no luck, and did not see the first net fly till after 11:00am. What little bite there was died at 3:00pm. We saw roughly 15 fish hooked between 35+ boats, with about 10 fish landed, and only 2 of those were Coho throwbacks.
I have to say that it was a beautiful Fall day in Florence! Light wind and sunshine made for a great day on the water.
