Question Siletz summer runs?

I will be in the central coast area next week, and was wondering if anybody has experience fishing for them? What patterns and areas do you recomend?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

The thing you need to bring are the fish.We have been seeing very few summer fish on the coast. Water levels are now at August levels and falling. I wish I could say something positive but at this point in time we are looking at another dismal return. Try fishing down at the salt/freshwater mix for any new fish moving into the river, that would be your best bet.

Still a tad early, go above moonshine. The Nestucca and or Wilson may be a better bet for hatchery chrome, however, river levels are down and so are fish counts.

The Siletz was way too low!

We headed over the moutains for a day and fished the North Fork Santiam. We fished my old stomping grounds without a grab from anything but trout. We ran into a fella who said he floated 2 days without any luck and the steelhead counts were down in that system as well.

Thanks again for the info, guys! Had fun, just no luck!

you're welcome

to come fish the Rogue,numbers are down here as well but the numbers mean little to me i fish below (way below) Gold Rey(only place they count)

so it's all wide open;you may encounter a bulge of steel a wad of cuthroats or be pestered by 80 dink smolts or stumble into a wave of chinook=enjoy!

i won't mention ANY other rivers ever again since i was PM'd and,,all i have even a clue about IS the Rogue and after all these years it's still new every time i hit it,maybe that's why it's all i want to know about,when do we start!?

just fishin'
