Life Cycle of the Chinook Salmon:
The natural cycle of fall Chinook Salmon is an incredible adventure in survival. Beginning with the eggs being deposited in a gravel nest, or redd, the many faces of nature take their toll. While each adult spawning pair will leave 3,000 to 6,000 eggs in the gravel, only a relative few will survive to hatch. Even fewer will emerge from redds as free-swimming fry. Over the next year….predators, disease, flood, drought and pollution reduce the numbers of fish surviving to the smolt stage, when young salmon undergo the physiological changes necessary to migrate to the Pacific Ocean. After one to six years in the ocean feeding of krill, crab spawn, herring, shrimp, squid, anchovies and other fish species, Chinook Salmon mature to the spawning physiology. They use their keen sense of smell to find the way back to their native streams. As adult salmon enter fresh water they lose the ability to digest food, so they survive to spawn by using the energy reserves stored in fat, flesh, blood and bones. After spawning, most salmon die, but in death they contribute valuable nutrients to their native streams.

GRATUITY ACCEPTED FOR A JOB WELL DONE.
After getting skunked my last 5 trips, I decided to book a steelhead trip with All-Star Outfitters for the Siuslaw River. It was a GREAT decision, as I landed THREE steelhead. Two were large, chrome-bright natives. Thank you All-Star Outfitters for putting me on the fish! ~ David Seater – Springfield, Oregon
