A message from the Oregon Angler, Todd Hannah about the 2009 fishing season
       What a salmon season it was for us here on the Umpqua River..... 353 Salmon landed in September and October in my boat alone, over 100 more fish than 2008 season. Our best day September 11 we landed 22 salmon with a 17 fish day that same week.  Vince Biondo landed the big fish for the season at 36 pounds on September 15, a 41 pounder won the Labor Day salmon derby this year.  On October 25 Sharon Allen landed a 34 pound Chinook, we had a lot of other nice fish this year in the 30 pound class.  I am already excited for next year as there is a good possibility we may be able to keep some of the wild Coho that we had to release in past years.  The King salmon run has been on the rise now for a few years so I am not worried about the returning numbers.( photos next email)

       Let's think about winter Steelhead, the first few have been caught in the Umpqua already with a season of December through March, you have plenty of time to plan your trip.  In past years I have always seen a good push of fish in December.  January can be a wet cold month but the fish are in the river.  February usually produces both good fishing and better weather. I have put together a Steelhead fishing package, 2 days fishing Umpqua Steelhead with me and 3 nights lodging at the River Bank Guest house for a price of $777.00 for 2 people.  Not only is that a lucky number but what a great price!  We will be fishing out of my 22 foot jet boat most of the time, so if the weather is wet we will have the top up and the heater going.  Lunch and snacks always taste better in the dry comfort of the top and heater.  If water is low and the weather is nice we will use my 20 foot Koffler drift boat.
       I am not going to talk spring Chinook season just yet...just remember last year over 10,000 adult spring Chinook and 4,000 jacks went over the Winchester dam.  That's a lot of jacks so April and May 2010 looks good for adult salmon.  Some of you already have your dates reserved and that's a good thing!
