Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : North and South Santiam River: North - Due to warm water temperatures (over 65 F), adult Chinook salmon are dying in the Santiam River Basin. If you see a dead adult salmon in the North Santiam, South Santiam, Little North Fork, or mainstem Santiam River, please call the ODFW Corvallis District Office at 541 757 4186. District staff are monitoring river conditions and tracking the locations of dead salmon.

River conditions are very good at the moment and should remain so for the next week. Chinook are entering the basin in good numbers, but summer steelhead numbers are still relatively low. About 429 summer steelhead and 5,861 spring Chinook plus 79 jacks have navigated Bennett dam as of June 13. Best bets for these fish are in the lower river from Stayton to Shelburn, from Packsaddle to Fishermen’s Bend, and from Mehama down to Stayton.

When the ‘bite’ is on, bobbers and jigs are the preferred angling method with spoons, spinners and egg clusters also being effective. Currently the entire river below Packsaddle Park (near the Minto Fish Facility) is open year-round to adipose fin-clipped steelhead. Trout fishing opened Saturday May 23, 2015. Anglers are allowed to keep up to 5 fin-clipped trout per day through Oct. 31.

River levels best for fishing are below 3,000 cfs at the Mehama gauge (currently the Mehama gauge is around 1,260 cfs as of June 8

North - This section of the river is currently open to trout fishing. The river will be stocked again this week with 3,000 legal size rainbow trout. Holdover and resident trout can be found throughout the river. Anglers may keep up to 5 trout per day.

South - Due to warm water temperatures (over 65 F), adult Chinook salmon are dying in the Santiam River Basin. If you see a dead adult salmon in the North Santiam, South Santiam, Little North Fork, or mainstem Santiam River, please call the ODFW Corvallis District Office at 541 757 4186. District staff are monitoring river conditions and tracking the locations of dead salmon.

New summer steelhead and spring Chinook are arriving every day at Willamette Falls and many of these are bound for the South Santiam. Spring Chinook and a few summer steelhead are in the basin now and can be found throughout the river. Over 1800 Chinook arriving at the Foster Trap have been “recycled” downriver. Best sections to fish are from Wiley Creek to Pleasant Valley boat ramps, around Waterloo County Park, and from Lebanon down to the confluence with the North Santiam. Flows have already reached summer flow conditions, currently 900 cfs at Waterloo. They should remain low for the foreseeable future.
