Fall chinook is in full swing on the Umpqua river. Fishing has been tougher than the last couple of years. Hopefully as our tides become bigger the fish will come. I have been fishing a new set of Rainshadow BP1266's. Great troll rod. Here is a nice fish Mikey from California caught today.

Well steelhead fishing on the Umpqua has been the best I have ever seen this season. We have a bunch of fish and really low water conditions. I bought a new sled for fishing the shallow water and summertime water. The new boat has proved to be a great tool for helping to get to the fish.

Fall salmon starts in August, and it turned out to be a great season. Fishing on both the Umpqua and Siuslaw were great. Generally we had very successful trip. The weather got a little nasty at the end of September with record rainfall. However we were able to start fishing shortly after the storm. Next year looks to be a great year as well.

Summer smallmouth bass season is something I have always overlooked because of the five weeks I would spend in Astoria during late May and June. Now with sturgeon retention coming to an end bass and trout during the summer months will take over my time on the water. These trips are great for kids or family outings. The weather is warm, and it is a great time to take in the scenery while enjoying summertime temperatures.
