Fishing Reports


Rough weather has kept all the charter boats off the ocean for the past few weeks, so Brookings Fishing captain Andy Martin has been focusing on the Chetco and Smith rivers for fall king salmon. Fishing has been good, thanks in part to lots of early rain on the Oregon Coast. Capt. Andy and the other guides of have boated several limits in the last few days, with a few fish over 40 pounds. The fall salmon season runs through November. We will then switch to steelhead before turning our attention to ocean charters again in March.
