This salmon fishing report is courtesy of Smith River salmon fishing guides like Dave Jacobs Professional Guide Service. With another good storm coming and going last weekend the Smith River has been fishing very well with a good push of large king salmon showing all week. The Smith has dropped and cleared this week and king salmon to 40 pounds have come in. The best bets have been back trolling sardine wrapped plugs and roe/pufball combos. Pictured is Dakota Deines with one of our largest kings of the week. A chrome bright 34.5 pound Smith River king salmon caught on a sardine wrapped Kwikfish while out with Smith River guide Dave Jacobs this week. Chetco River salmon fishing report. Currently the Chetco River is coming into play as the Smith River drops and clears. The Chetco River has good groups of large king salmon moving in daily.
