The Chetco is located in the southwest corner of Oregon, only a few miles north of the California border. The Chetco is Famous for its superb salmon and steelhead fishing.Originating in the high mountains of the Siskiyou National Forest, the Chetco's uppermost reaches are protected within the Kalmiopsis Wilderness (a popular destination for hikers and backpackers). From there, the river flows southwest for 50 miles to its mouth at the town of Brookings. Through out the year, resident and sea run cutthroat inhabit every reach of the river, but salmon and steelhead are the main attraction for anglers. Salmon fishing begins in Chetco Cove in late July or August. Chinook salmon feed voraciously on anchovies and other baitfish in the protected waters of the cove. Trolling herring, anchovies and spinners is the most popular style of fishing. By September, a good number of Chinook begin to hold in the tidewater reaches of the river, as well as the first few deep pools above the reach of tide. Until the fall rains arrive, salmon accumulate in this section of the river, where fly fishing from a boat is a preferred method. Float fishing and casting lures are also popular. Once the rains of autumn arrive (in October or November), the salmon move into the greater river. Winter steelhead move into the Chetco from November to the end of March, and provide excellent sport.
