What to Expect in October

How to use this section.

This is one of the best coho salmon rivers you'll encounter. If you find yourself in an slow section with a swarm of dark coho that are leaping and rolling and getting you all excited--forget it. Those guys are not good biters. Move downriver and fish the same kind of water you'd expect to find steelhead in. Try a sparse fly and medium-density sink-tip line. Cast down-and-across, let the fly swing, then strip it back quickly.

After each rain, hit the river quickly. That way you'll be fishing over fresh fish that entered with the rain.
