Water Temperature  

Conditions : North and South Santiam River: Fish can be found throughout the river, but are more concentrated in the upper sections (Mehama to Packsaddle), where summer steelhead and spring Chinook can find cooler water. But plenty of new arrivals are on their way. Counts at Willamette Falls as of June 30 show over 28,000 spring Chinook and about 17,238 summer steelhead have entered the upper basin. Of those, over 4,400 spring Chinook and 2,237 summer steelhead have made it above Stayton on the North Santiam through June 30. Warming water temperatures should make fish more active. 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 the Minto Fish Facility is open to salmon and steelhead fishing.

UPDATE: The new boat slide at Upper Bennett Dam will be closed starting June 20 in order to perform routine maintenance on the dam. It is scheduled to re-open around Labor Day. Boaters can use the boat slide at Lower Bennett dam on the north channel around Geren Island in order to reach the Sayton boat ramp.

UPDATE: The new gate at the Green’s Bridge boat launch site is now closed for the summer through Labor Day. Boat anglers wishing to use the site will need to obtain a key from the ODFW district office in Adair Village. For further information, call 541-757-4183.

Flows in the South Santiam below Foster dam have dropped to around 1,040 are cfs and should remain fairly stable for the next few weeks. These are excellent conditions coinciding with a large influx of new fish into the basin. Spring Chinook and summer steelhead numbers at Willamette Falls indicate an improved run this year, and so far fish have showed up in good numbers to the base of Foster dam. 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. So far, 1,194 spring Chinook and 1,541 summer steelhead have entered the fish ladder, as of July 3.
