Heading to the southern Oregon coast to look for some chinook on a river known to produce. I’ve hooked a few salmon in the past while searching for steelhead, but I have no experience targeting them. I’ve heard swinging broadside can work pretty well, and a few other tips but any first hand experience would be appreciated. Speed, color, profile? What do you think?
Ps my buddy will be nymphing so if anyone can post anything helpful in that area I would also appreciate it.

The first thing is making certain there are chinook in the system. They tend to be an early spring run, but I think it might still be too early for them. I think fall runs usually end in November.
After you check the runs, I have found that something garish, pinks, oranges, and chartreuse, and swing a sink tip in front of them.
