Lightbulb Umpqua River Fall Chinook Wobblers

Does anyone fish the Umpqua River for fall chinook with wobblers? If so do you fish below the 101 bridge or up higher? I never see it on the river, but think you could do well on the out going tide. Appreciate some input if you have done it or know of people fishing this way. Thanks Chinooknut

Never know tell you try. I have not seen them but there might be some. It is mostly a spinner and herring show.

I did it once, anchored on a outgoing tide. Probably wont do it again for the following reasons.

1. I catch plenty of fish trolling, anchoring in a hot spot will not be favorable by the trollers.
2. The trash coming down the river on the outgoing tide was terrible, lots of tide slime and weeds, was very much a pain.
3. The speed of the tide is pretty fast at times, only really productive the last few hours, and agin the weeds/slime was bad. At the speed of the tide was too much for a wobbler most of the tide.

good luck.

How about anchoring up above the 101 bridge a half mile or more? If it works so well in the Columbia I just think it should work in the Umpqua River somewhere.

When in Rome do as the Romans seems to be the case when it comes to fishing. What works one place doesn't make sense or work for another. But, I am sure you can try it by the bridge and get it out of your system, I have wondered the same thing myself.

Hijack. Does anybody know where I can find a picture of that 70 pounder that that guy caught on a fly rod down there 5 or 6 years ago?

There was an article in STS magazine maybe 5 to 10 years ago about a 70 pounder caught in the Rogue on fly gear. I remember the picture and the story.
