Conditions : UMPQUA RIVER: The mainstem Umpqua is closed to wild steelhead harvest but remains open year-round for adipose fin-clipped steelhead. The mainstem has been low but it looks like it will be high for the weekend. Late winter steelhead should be decent with dropping river levels, with “plunking” being a good strategy. Spring Chinook season is in full swing with regular reports of anglers catching fish throughout the main.

On the Main, anglers can harvest 2 wild spring Chinook per day and up to 5 wild springers from Feb. 1 – June 30. From July 1– Dec. 31, you can harvest 2 wild Chinook per day, and in combination with the other salmon/ steelhead recorded on your salmon tag, up to 20 fish total. Fin-clipped hatchery fish can be recorded on a separate hatchery harvest tag that is available. There is no limit on the number of hatchery tags that can be purchased. Daily limits still apply.

North - Winter steelhead are being caught in the North when the river is in shape. Watch the river gauges (North Umpqua River water levels at Winchester Dam) as water levels have been chronically high this year. Fish can still be caught at higher water levels especially if water clarity is decent, and there have been reports of steelhead being caught during the recent higher water levels.

Spring Chinook fishing should start picking up. There have been some reports of fish being caught below Winchester Dam.

The South Umpqua is open until May 1 upstream to Jackson Creek. Only adipose fin-clipped steelhead may be retained. Anglers are still hooking into a few hatchery fish. The South closes from May 1 through May 22 to protect migrating fish.

The river contains a variety of fish species and supports year-round fishing. Boat ramps are numerous all along the length of the lower river. Winchester Bay, at the mouth of the river, is a major sport fishing destination and also has ocean charters. The upper two forks of the Umpqua River east of Roseburg are also popular for fishing

Driving Directions: The lower Umpqua River is paralleled by Hwys 38 and 138. Hwy 101 crosses the Umpqua at Reedsport, Oregon.
