Winchester Bay Salmon Report – It’s All About Access

The most recent salmon fishing reports out of Winchester Bay continue to be that the salmon fishing is good – if anglers are able to cross the Umpqua River Bar and actually fish the ocean.

In a week, or two, the lower river should have fishable numbers of fall Chinook in it – making it a great “Plan B” for would-be ocean salmon anglers and a “Plan A” for shorebound anglers wanting to cast spinners or spoons for salmon. The early fish caught by bank anglers are almost always Chinooks.
