Reel Deal: Bottomfish bite near Brookings

With winter slowly giving way to spring and the Chetco River closing on April 1, many anglers have started moving on from the winter steelhead runs on the Wild Rivers coast to other fishing opportunities in the region. Locals still have plenty of time and opportunity to haul in a steelhead on the Smith River, however, where the season runs through the end of the month.

Some anglers have decided to head north to the Rogue River, where the spring salmon run has reportedly been producing a couple salmon per day for about a month. Others took advantage of a flat ocean this week to target bottomfish in Oregon, where the season stays open year round.
