Does anyone have a report about how fishing has been in the Alsea for chinook?

Lots being caught all the way up to Tidewater.
River still too low anywhere up from there.

Just came back from there. Friday was dead, didn't see anyone catch anything. Saturday was slow but managed one 40" chinook in the AM and lost another PM(its a @#$ to land a fish by yourself). Crabbing was decent though.

Jaws. Had to go out some. I hooked both just before the bar. Need to be careful out there though, witnessed a nice boat go down there last year.

The family and I went over and fished Sat-today. Was slow but managed to get one chrome hen for 3 days of fishing but was the wife's first Oregon salmon so still happy . Saw maybe 6 caught down on Drift creek and then fished up above Kozy using eggs. It was not good up high at all. I didn't see anything rolling up there either and think I will give couple weeks and try again.

I would stick with just trolling down low at this point, the water temp s really warm up in bobber water still so doubt that's helping either. The biggest problem down where we trolled was the salad was crazy. Had to clean off the gear about every 20 seconds

"Lots" is not a correct term to use here. FEW is more like it. Drift creek and the jaws are producing a FEW. The upper tidewater is really slow. This could change any day however.

Any updates for this week/weekend?

With the rain we've been getting in the Portland area, I am hoping the river level has come up enough for the chinook to start heading up river. Any news from those in the know?

I will be just above Tidewater at one of the first few fishing holes; private property. I think if the water level rises a bit more, some fish may head upriver and get stuck in those holes if the water level goes back down. Basically I'm looking for confirmation that some fish are working their way upriver with the rising water levels over the past few days with the rain. I'll just watch the river levels closely the next two days and go from there. However, any continuing info or updates from those down there would be greatly appreciated.

In August there are always a few of what they call Summer Chinook that go to the lower tribs on the Alsea. That spurt lasts just a few days and a few will always bite in the 70 degree water. With the good tides coming up fishing the jaws will be good but the weeds have been terrible (even worse than Tillamook). A few Coho are starting to show but the best is yet to come assuming they don't all get sucked upriver by a freshet or three like last year.

Dead as a doornail in the river from the 1st bank access spots all the way up to the deadline for Tuesday the 24th. It is rising as of right now; so fish should be coming in after this rain event on. I know that Monday was good for catching in the river, but it seemed to be the darkies that were marinating in tidewater. They are through and the river was relatively sparse with a lack of fish, but they will be coming in thick from tidewater (so we hope).

I have alot of drift boat experience (drift boat guide in alaska) but have never drifted the Alsea river. I am looking for suggestions of boat launches that would be good to launch at once the water starts to rise. Not looking for secret holes or anything, I can read water. Just looking for a suggestion with boat ramp names in an area within the first ten miles above tidewater. I also would be curious of any potential hazards on this stretch. Thanks for the help!

There's a put in at Barkley's brake, river mile 12 or 13. Its basically a "ninny ninny poo poo" slide, this would be your best bet to hitting the first holes above tidewater. Its kind of a sketch slide though so you might want to check it out first before launching. There's another slide below Ernie Walters but above Barkley's break, i just can't remember what river mile its on.

I would probably recommend the Lower Hellion to the Barclay hole run. There are no real public take outs below the Barclay Hole.

Any reports from the last few days or weeks will be pretty much null & void beyond this weekend if the current forecast holds (flow predicted to go up ~2Kcfs by Sunday night).

Couldn’t find an open seat, but got to fish! Just moved up here from AZ and need to start catching some real fish. Don’t have a boat yet, so I have a three part question: (1) where would be the best place from shore, (2) what times should I go, (3) how should I fish for them? Any help would be amazing, or open seat….

You have a week or so to get your gear together and find a location on what ever river you choose. The recent floods on coastal streams have brought down logs and debris and muddied all the water. I suppose many fish will make it to fresh water after the rivers drop and clear.

Going out on a limb here to say that by your post, you know absolutely nothing about our fishery. I'm not trying to discourage you by any way but just giving you the best advise I could give someone who has never fished for salmon or steelhead.

I have been an avid fishermen (all kinds) my entire life (I'm 55) and have never hired a fishing guide. If I had it to do over again, I would certainly do this and here is why. By hiring a guide, you will be put into an anglers time machine and come out the other end with the knowledge it would take you years to learn on your own. It may seem a little spendy, but if you think about it and do the math, you would be saving hundreds if not thousands of dollars in terms of what you will reap in relatively short time.
Now, this is not to say that you couldn't be a successful fisherman for these fish on your own; that would depend on you. Some just take to it better than others. I learned by going, watching, reading and being persistant but spent a lot of money, a lot of time trying different things that I thought I should be doing and using but was missing on little thinigs that made a huge difference. One other thing. Most fishermen would rather tell you than show you. Asking for an open seat may get you one, but don't hold your breath. If you don't hire a guide, buy a book on the subject and have an open mind and you must be persistant to learn how to catch fish with regularity.

Good luck

You want to hook up with Grant Scheele in Albany...he's one of the best guides around & will get you going on the right track. Just google him, book a trip, and enjoy the northwest!! The rest will be history

Any luck on the Alsea this weekend? Was there sunday (drift creek to taylors) didn't see one fish caught or in a boat. Heard at the dock 8 fish came through but sure wasn't that many for as many boats that were out there. Any idea why such low numbers or am I not getting the straight scoop?

My wife got one at the jaws...only saw 4 others caught before we left. There were some caught in the stretch you mentioned. Saw two, and know of 5 others on our way up to Taylor's for lunch. Marked a lot of fish.
Good luck

Sunday (10/6) a group of us had 20 take downs and landed 8 coho and 3 chinook.
Also saw a few instagram posts of several more fish landed. I've never seen so many people parked on the side of the road on my way out to my spot--lots of people fishing!

Headed out again tomorrow...we will see what happens

Go to the top, look at the right, you'll see "private messages", click on that and from there if you look at the left, you'll see send a private message, click on that and you'll be ready to go. It helps if you know how to spell the name (moniker) of the person you want to pm.

and you wonder why that is? just saying that if you post 400,000 take downs, you get what you are asking for. 35 posts so far, and 6000 views.

the coastal rivers are all pretty simple: the river goes up, and then comes down, then groups of fish swim up and get caught or spawn. not saying you, but others, I don't understand why asking for reports, as it just brings tons of people to tight quarters.

river up, river down, fish, smile to yourself about your catch, repeat.

Ha ha ha...I'm okay with seeing all of those people out there. It's a great year all over the NW and there is a lot of fishable water, and fish, in every system.

I thought ifish was a nice community to help others out...apparently I'm mistaken.

lots of good advice, rigging techniques, killer egg cures, safety tips. yes, IFish is a great place to help others. but tell your nice little fishing spot, and have 400 people standing there the next time you go, that isn't helping anybody out.

i'll tell you everything I know about how to catch fish, except where I am going. kokanee fishing, I put up pic's of my fish finder, depth, pic's of lures, area of the lake, cause you can have a lot of people floating around in a lake without any problems.

tell where to stand, yes you are mistaken.

Took the family over and fished yesterday down by Drift but very slow....Did see 3 hooked at high slack in the morning but that was it. One of those was lost to a seal. Felt bad for the guy Looked like those where silvers. Never seen so many seals in one place. Saw 5 hanging out right the mouth of Drift Cr. alone.

Feeling from the folks I talked to said they felt things are starting to wrap up. But between rain showers still got to see some sunshine

Going to try and get the kid a fish still but may be time to try something else...Still hoping things pick up again

How do you fish for Alsea salmon? Troll cut plug herring? Eggs on a bobber? Spinners? I was thinking about going to either Drift Creek area or upriver towards Taylor's -- are the bait and techniques different for those areas of the Alsea? Anybody doing any catching lately?
