Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : North and South Santiam River: North - Flows currently stand at 2,440 cfs at Mehama, a significant drop from last week, and excellent conditions for fishing. Best conditions might be found in the lower reaches where new summer and winter steelhead are staging. Counts at Willamette Falls as of April 20 show 4,396 3,810 winter steelhead and 992 summer steelhead have entered the upper basin. Spring Chinook have also arrived in earnest with 1,887 fish counted so far at Willamette Falls, almost all within the last week. 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.

Flows in the South Santiam have come down significantly since last week, and conditions are excellent. Currently, they are at 1,710 cfs with good clarity. Spring Chinook and summer steelhead have begun to show up at Willamette Falls, but are still a week or two away from entering the Santiams in any significant number. Winter steelhead and a few fresh summer steelhead are in the basin right now and can be found from the mouth up to Foster dam. So far, 69 winter and 5 summer steelhead have entered the fish ladder below Foster dam as of April 8.
