Thinking about motoring up the Salmon River (near Lincoln City) this weekend in the driftboat and finding a nice spot to bobber fish a few hours. I've only fished the Salmon River for one season (last fall) and it was a bit further into the fall season around September. I did manage to land a nice coho last fall, but it was native and went back into the water. Anyone have anything to say on the fishy situation there now? Hardware advice?
Thanks!

I don't fish the Salmon, but I think its a little early for it to fish.

I think I would go to the river where the dog rides on the bow of the boat ;)

wink wink nod nod, say no more.... you know i realized a couple years ago that part of the reason for my limited numbers of catches is that i do enjoy fishing where the crowds are less. crowds are smaller because the fish aren't really there.... i should learn....

Way to early, in fact i heard that the fall run will be next to nothing and that everyone should cancel any plans to fish there. Yup gunna be a bad year, hours and hours of trying for nothing. Wasted gas, time, not to mention $. I think the big Nestucca would be a better choice oh yeah, lotsa water, no people, just a better time all around. Good luck!:meme:
