October through January.
The Elk River is 50 miles long with 10 miles of the best King Salmon fishing water for late season Fall King Salmon to be found anywhere. The Elk River is a wonderful river for Oregon salmon fishing, a small stream with more King salmon holding water and holes per mile than any other stream in Oregon.
The Elk River King Salmon will out fight all other King Salmon hands down. More fish are lost here on the Elk River than are landed due to water conditions and the attitude of these Elk River King Salmon. On the average these big Fall King Salmon will win their battle 50% of the time as they are big, mean and aggressive, all qualities we want in great Oregon Salmon fishing trips.
