Oregon’s Siletz Bay: At the Mouth

Yesterday, I stood at the mouth of Siletz Bay (Oregon) where Chinook and Coho Salmon were surging into the bay from the Pacific Ocean. The weather was balmy. Not a hint of rain. Further into the tidewaters of local rivers the salmon are kegged up, waiting to move upriver to spawn. Rain is needed to flush the fish upward out of the tidewaters.

But, the fishing was good yesterday right at the mouth of Siletz Bay. The surf pounding just off the mouth of the bay was beautiful. The quieter water, just inside the mouth, was teaming with surging salmon.

    Pretty awesome! I’ve seen the tail end of the Coho Salmon run on a river here in CA. I’ve wanted to get back up there, but haven’t had a chance this year or last. 😦 Hopefully next year.
