So you could have an early returning hatchery produced fish from the Siuslaw, but rarely.

Compare that poadunk hatchery run to the over 30,000 adult wild coho that returned the last 3 years AND, "ah yes virgina, we should have had a 1,000 wild fish quota for sportsfishers", just a case of politics plain and simple to appease the wild fish preservationist in Portland.

Look at with only having a run of 3-5,000 adult hatchery winter steelhead on the Siuslaw, and it generates 60-75,000 angler days of effort. What would a wild fish coho fishery generate for the Siuslaw? What will the small run of wild coho on the Siletz for fishermen this year produce for angling effort? It is flat plain disgusting if you ask me.

Just spoke with RODACTION tonight and he's been fishing there for the past 6 days. Ken has been putting quality fish in the boat, both in size and numbers. So if you see the big red sled down there give him a call and I'm sure he'll get you into the fish.

All bait, and fish the best quality bait you can find. It may cost you, the reward is fish in your boat. More lead is better than less, use a sliding system. Keep your baits on the bottom.....!!!! if your in 25 feet of water, keep the bait at 23 feet down, (or 24 to 26 iches off the bottom, that is where most fish are) if your in 13 feet of water, keep the bait at 11 feet down. It is rather simple. Find fish and stay with them. They tend to hang out for quite some time. They do not just shoot up river.

Good luck to you all.

Ken

Yes it is, take a net, the rocks and steep bank are no picnic for landing fish.

I am confused also. I don't understand why you got the ticket, if you had a tag. Why didn't he give the ticket to the guy who did not have a tag. I don't think that a conviction would be possible unless he saw the guy who did not have a tag fishing. The ticket should have been given to the guy who did not have a tag, although, in my opinion, if he had gotten the ticket, he should fight it and he will win. Unless, the cop can say he saw him fishing, which he might do whether or not he saw him. What was your ticket for? Not doing a good job of being your brother's keeper? Why are you responsible for some guy fishing in your boat without a tag? I don't know of any crime for that.

I often have 5-6 rods set up and baited on the ready on the boat. Occasionaly, we have wives and grandkids along who wont/dont fish. Does this now mean I must make sure that I have a license and tag for every person and child on boat. How 'bout my bulldog, he is pretty adept at handling a levelwind!!! Sounds to me that he must have been an overzealious Stater. Was he OSP, a Sheriff, or ODFW?

If what you are saying is true, don;t wait for you court date, go stright to the head of his department. By the way you don;t need a tag to fish for other species. Please post results.

Ain't no way the captain of the boat should have gotten the ticket, even if the cop saw the guy without a tag fishing. That guy should have gotten the ticket. But, if the cop never saw the tagless guy fishing, then no one should have gotten a ticket. Seems strange to me. Something is weird about the story or the cop.

There are some fish around between Brickerville and Swiss Home; a mixed bag of bright and dusky nooks as well as the beginning of the coho run. Its been pretty typical fall salmon for me, a few holes that consistently produce fish plus a few hot bites when the fish get to moving.

Hit the river today. Started at low slack and fished incoming. Huge tide. One silver and two on and offs. One jumped and spit the hook the other shook the rod a few times and disappeared. Lots of debris in the water, grass, sticks, small logs. Pretty messy. Saw one pig at the dock in Florence. Seemed slow to me.

Other reports?

We went out yesterday, 3 rods from ~11am till 6pm. Herring, Sardines, FBR's, Kwikfish, spinners.... One hard bite, but he popped off shortly after. Otherwise nothing else in our boat. Saw (3) fish landed around us throughout the day. As we were taking a out a guide was cleaning fish, they had 6 fish, didn't see 'em tho.

The Siuslaw is closed to salmon fishing above the forks.

i think you can fish above the forks for coho ? but the odds of getting a finclipped are horrible...

and why we can't keep a native coho given the numbers there are around ? or is this stirring up a bees nest....

Fished Friday. 2 nooks in the boat, 1 silver (released), 2 shakers and one lost early, early on in the fight (right after a solid..or not, hook set). I am getting my faith in the Siuslaw renewed.

Finally, after a looooong dry spell the net finally went for a short dip. Fished Saturday from dairy hole to summer homes. Landed one nice, but wild silver and had one hard slap that didn't stick. Doesn't sound like much but given my serious and lengthy lack of success on the Slaw it was a major accomplishment. To the guys on the other thread that steered me toward zincs for my boat as a possible solution to my uncatchiness...a big hardy THANKS.

i checked the voltage in the water next to my trolling motor last year and found 0.7 volts. i added zincs but grounding the cylinder head of my non electric start trolling motor is what took it to 0volts and the boat is catching way better!!just a thought. hope it helps.

out of curiosity, how did you measure this? did you put one probe on the boat, and one in the water by your motor? Or did you actually put one probe on your motor?

Chinookslayer...passing on the tip I got from my friends Fishhead69 and Northriver1. Hook the negative of the volt meter to any metal part of the motor or the negative post on the battery. The positive goes to the boat at or below water level.

Heading over in a week or so and hoping to get an evening in on the Siuslaw. I'm hoping to find out what are the public river access spots between Mapleton and Whittaker Creek. Any places to avoid might also be helpful.

Earlier post mentioned fishing is closed above the forks.. I assumed this to mean Whittaker Creek or Wildcat Creek where 126 meets the Siuslaw, but as I look at the map I am wondering if 'the forks' is where Lake Creek comes in. Any clarification for me there? The regs state it is open all the way up to Whittaker Creek but that may have changed, I dunno...

Found http://www.dfw.state.or.us/resources...ok_Seasons.pdf and it answered my question... Coho only up to Whittaker Creek... Alright good Deal. So I guess if I'm looking for Chinook I may be looking at Mapleton only...

The forks are where lake creek comes into the siuslaw. This was the deadline last year. I'm not sure where the deadline is this year.

Torn between eggs up high or trolling summer homes this weekend. Any thoughts?

Water was somewhat clear, but fast and high above Mapleton.

chinookslayer. i just put the positive probe in the water between my
trolling motor and my big motor. the negative probe went onto the battery
negative post. as i said earlier, the voltage went from 0.7v to 0. and i think it made a big difference in the hook up ratio. good luck. i would like to hear of any others who have measured and adjusted their parasitic boat voltage and their thoughts

Widjensen,

Were your motors or any electrical componets turned on when you did this?

Yes the motors were running and i was at trolling speed. i also had my depth finder on. i suggest turning on anything that you would have on fishing. it is important to have good grounds on everything.

Sat on the bank near Tide last night (11-3) for a couple hours. Saw 6-7 jump out in front of me. Several boats went by, none with fish in them. One boat said they got one in the boat out of three guys earlier in the day. There was only one guy in the boat when I talked with him.

Local kid came down and fished with me. He had a trout rod and was casting a small blue fox. Nice enough kid. 10-11 years old. Talked too much, but it was fun.

I floated eggs. I floated a kwikfish. I fished off the bottom. Nothing. River is coming down but I think it was still a bit high for my likes.
