Default Newport and the bay for Salmon?

Going over to fish for salmon in the Newport area.
Most likely in the bay and up river. Ocean would depend on conditions, hmm is the ocean open right now?

Can anyone give me a report of how it's going?
Looking to see where we should focus the boat.
And what might be best to use.

Thanks

Geemo

I'll give a report on how we do and what we see while we're there on Sunday.

There are kings scattered from the gas plant in the bay to way above Toledo. Coho's and a few kings are being caught around the oyster plant up to marker 31. Above that is mostly widely scattered kings. You can expect to catch a king anywhere around the Toledo airport boat ramp using herring behind a flasher. They are also being caught on spinners and Brads cut plugs. There really isn't a hot spot right now, just some fish caught every day somewhere.

If you're going to fish YR for salmon on Sunday, consider entering the U DA Man salmon tournament. Info is on the very top of the SD board, up where folks don't usually look. There will be lots of boats on the bay and river on Sunday, lots. and some years there is a sailboat race on the bay while the salmon tourney is happening, at least that's what my poor old memory tells me.

Watch for seals. They've been working upriver. I lost a nice fish to one last Saturday.

Fished Yaquina Bay on Saturday - from the Oyster House up to around 31. Saw three jacks caught and had one weak bite. Decent # of boats. Fish checker at South Beach said she'd checked one chinook jack all day. Pretty slow. Need rain.

Lead dropper flasher or dodger cut plug herring or Brads cut plug lure. That's pretty much the go to setup.
