Fall Salmon Fishing and Busted Rods
If there ever was a more feirce battle of dogged determination and deep throbbing- rod wrenching fun it is from the standoff between the fly angler and an angry fall salmon. Fall chinook or the notorious Chum salmon both are known for their tackle testing brute power and are a blast to go after with the fly rod.
This season WTO guide Todd Rettmann is offering trips for catch & release chum salmon and trophy chinook fishing in the Tillamook area that is sure to test your tackle. Come join Todd on Oregon's Tillamook area rivers. Todd will be floating some of Oregon's best salmon rivers in a Clackacraft drift boat and can accomodate up to three anglers. Look for best dates from Nov 2-15.
Most fishing is done with a #8 or #9 weight rod but a #10 weight is not too heavy. Flies are often bright and flashy and expect to be using deep sinking sink tips or other tricks Todd has in the bag to get the fly deep where bright chinook and chums like to hang out.
Guided trips consist of full day 8-9 hour float trip, flies and required tackle. Two guests fee is $500 and three guests fee is $700.
