About: - The Smith River, is a 75-mile long major tributary of the Umpqua River. Unlike the Umpqua, which originates in the Cascade Mountains, the Smith River originates in the Oregon Coast Range and has the same character as other coastal streams such as the Siuslaw and Alsea Rivers to the north. The lower part of the river is influenced by the tides. Most angler fish for chinook salmon in the fall, steelhead in the winter, stripers in the spring through summer, shad in May and June, and searun cutthroat starting in August.

Driving Directions: The Smith River is paralleled by Douglas County Road 48 for most of its length. Hwy 101 crosses the Smith River at Reedsport, Oregon.

Campgrounds: Smith River Falls Campground (BLM) is about mid way along the length of the stream and has 8 tent/trailer sites, vault toilets, but no water. Numerous other campgrounds are present along Hwy 101 north and south of Reedsport, Oregon.

  • Fall chinook salmon
  • winter steelhead
  • cutthroat trout
  • striped bass
  • Shad
