A group from southern California hired guide Andy Martin to fish them on four different rivers in four days (the Elk, Sixes and Chetco in southern Oregon and northern California's Smith River. Pictured are Ryav Vernand and his son Jordan with two nice fall Chinook salmon taken from the Sixes River on Dec. 16th.

Three generations of the Vernand family, grandfather Doug, dad Ryan and Jordan, pose with a nice late season king from the Smith. The fish were caught on roe cured with Pautzke’s BorxOFire or MagLip 4.5 plugs.
