Here’s the plan: meet at the Kilchis River Park Saturday morning. We’ll gear-up, talk strategy, then hit some favorite stretches in pursuit of these hard fighting salmon Instruction will be provided for members who require it.


~7 to 10wt rods with matching reel & at least 100 yds of backing. I’ll have a couple of extra outfits, check with me

~floating & sink tip lines

~7 1/2 to 10ft leaders tapered to 20 to 25lbs

~flies, egg patterns & Chum flies, look up on the internet, check with our sponsor fly shops, I’ll have extra

~pliers or forceps these fish have really big teeth

~waders & wading boots & I much suggest a wading staff.

~rain coat & rain hat. It’s Oregon

~dress in layers as the temperature can really vary

~camera in waterproof bag

Directions: Take Hwy 26 west, then turning onto Hwy 6 to Tillamook. Turn right onto Hwy 101, go past the cheese factory then turn on the Kilchis river road & drive to the Kilchis River Park. Cross the wooden bridge, & we’ll meet in the parking lot. This an annual & popular CFF outing. It’s a really good chance to hook these large (8 to 20 pounds) hard fighting fish. We normally fish till 1 or 2, meet at a local watering hole for lunch before heading home. I’ll go down Friday the 10th & check the fishing conditions. If there is a problem it will be posted on the CFF blog Friday evening. Hope you can make this trip, it’s usually a blast!
