Fall Kings or Chinook Salmon Fishing Trip
Elk River near Port Orford Oregon
October through January. The Elk River is 50 miles long with 10 miles of the best Fall King / Chinook Salmon fishing water for late season Fall Kings / Chinook in Oregon. The ElkRiver is a wonderful stream to fish for Fall Kings. A small costal stream with more Fall King / Chinook Salmon fishing holes per mile than I have ever encountered. These Fall Kings / Chinook will average close to 30 pounds with attitude, great fighters in small water makes these kings top sport. Mostly on our fishing trips use back-bounced roe or big back-trolled plugs from drift boats. You can combine your Oregon Fishing Trip or vacation to include the Elk River ~ Sixes River ~ Chetco River on the same Oregon fishing trip.

The Sixes River is a sister stream to the Elk, these two streams enter the Pacific Ocean at Cape Blanco State Park about 2 miles apart. Fall King / Chinook Salmon run 25 to 50 pounds in the Sixes. The Sixes is about 50 miles long and has a gentler gradient than the Elk. The Sixes is a more laid back stream not as intense as the Elk. There are more total miles of accessible fishing water on the Sixes than the Elk.
