Your fall chinook run is about over...

The south coast rivers and Wilson I'd say are best bet..

It's time for winter steel!! :dance:

The Wilson still has some decent looking Chinook still in it. Quite a drive for you though..

Yea I'd def go for the Elk/Sixes/Chetco area... have no clue about reports from down there but i know there are USUALLY bright nooks in December there.

Try the Guides Forecast for some info.

12/10 - Taken from the guides forecast.. "Chinook are holding in the low waters of the Elk and Sixes rivers and are not cooperating with anglers. Rain is needed here to re-invigorate this fishery."

Well with the rain this week I'd say this week is a good time to hit it up!
I would if I lived closer!

There's always a few late run chinook in the Siuslaw, but I wouldn't actually go out and target them. I've caught Chinook in there as a bycatch when targetting steelhead in December, but, really, it's not worth the money to drive over there just for chinook. Winter steel is in! My neighbor caught two bright fish just below Austa. Peak months are January and February though...
