|The Port of Brookings
Harbor bustles at the mouth of the popular salmon fishing spot,
the Chetco River, on the beautiful Siskiyou Coast in southern
Oregon. Located just over the border from California and the
Redwood National Forest, the Port of Brookings Harbor is the
Gateway Port to Oregon. With Oregon's safest bar and temperate
climate, the Port offers an ideal site for the serious deep-sea
fisherman or the person who has never tried his hand at catching
the big ones. On the Chetco River anglers can fish Steelhead,
Chinook, or Cut throat trout or dip a crab trap in at the public
fishing pier for Dungeness crab.
||The Port has a boat
ramp where one can launch for river or ocean fishing. Physically
impaired can fish from the handicapped pier off the jetty. There
is room for everyone! Center stage is a "Working Waterfront"
where commercial fishing boats are docked readied for a day at
sea. Fishermen are going about their business and answering the
questions of visitors. The Port's new transient dock is
available for large vessels and fishermen looking for a safe
port on a stormy night. Canneries provide local fish products
caught off the Siskiyou Coast.
prefer freshwater fishing, your best bet will be the nearby Chetco
and Winchuck rivers. Both
continue to receive rave reviews for their salmon, steelhead,
and cutthroat trout populations. The Chetco originates within
the Kalmiopsis Wilderness Area along with the North
Fork Smith River. The Elk
and Sixes rivers roar through the Grassy Knob
Wilderness Area about 60 miles to the north, and the mighty
Rogue River and the scenic Illinois
River merge in the Siskiyou National Forest some 30
miles north before spilling into the Pacific.
All six rivers offer
plenty of thrills and spills for white-water fans while
providing the numerous bends and trickling streams coveted by
fly fishermen. The rivers also combine with the region's coastal
rain forests and temperate climes to spawn a diverse population
of birds and other wildlife that you'll be hard pressed to find
in most any other part of the world.
