Come troll out of Port of Brookings for ocean Chinook Salmon. Bait balls are plentiful with large schools of salmon not far away. If the salmon are not cooperating we will switch gear and go get a limit of bottom fish. Halibut is also an option.

The first two weekends of October usually marks the famous bubble season where the ocean opens up just off shore at the chance of a big trophy king. Come spend the day trolling for these magnificent fish.

Chetco Bay and River Salmon: September - November

September marks the start of the Chetco Chinook Salmon run. These fish are built like footballs and fight like trophies! Fish average 20 to 25 lbs with an opportunity to hook into a 50+ lb king. They move in and out with the tides and are always bright!

Once the rains come, we move up river for a beautiful float down river in our Willie drift boat for continued opportunities at big Kings through November.


Starting in July, fishing off shore, we will fish cut plug herring with flashers for kings and coho salmon. These fish can be found shollow or deep depending on the conditons. We will use down riggers or weight to target these fish. This part of the coast drops off quickly so we do not have to go far for these fish. When the bites on, doubles and triples are not a far stretch. Come enjoy a day of fishing and check off your bucket list with a great fighting salmon.
