Florence, Oregon is a small town of just over 8,400 people. The town is on the north bank of the Siuslaw River which terminates in the Pacific Ocean. This is the time of the year that the salmon are running so fishing is quite popular right now. Janet and I went down to Bay Street (touristy area with restaurants, shops, and marina.) last Sunday and watched the fisherman cleaning their catch. Their salmon were in the two to three foot range and they said no one was having trouble catching their limit.
