Chetco River Chinook

SEATTLE - Some of the biggest fish of the year are making their way up the rivers of the Wild Country this month, and it'll all start this week thanks to a quick blast of rain over the weekend. I'm not sure if we'll see anything as ginormous as the 58-pounder that guide Andy Martin and client Carl Johnson hooked on the lower Chetco River (photo above), but we're already experiencing the best fishing in 20 years on Tillamook Bay, Hanford Reach, etc.

More to come? Could be! Tune in on Saturday as we reveal the best fall bites for the coming week.
