Hello Fishermen, It's King Salmon Season here on the Smith and Chetco. The fishing has been pretty good when we get water. The past couple storms have provided good fishing, but since we have not had a lot of rain it does not last long. We are forecast for some major rain starting this Sunday. Next weeks fishing should be great if we get the water. I have openings and my prices have not changed for 5 years. It's time to go fishing Next report 11/15 Hope you have a world class day! {707} 487-0260 or e-mail me at
