Conditions : UMPQUA RIVER: The mainstem Umpqua is closed to wild steelhead harvest, but remains open year-round for adipose fin-clipped steelhead. This fishery is primarily catch-and-release since the number of hatchery fish is relatively low compared to the number of wild fish. People interested in harvesting a steelhead should fish the South Umpqua from late January through April.

Springers have started to arrive. Most anglers will start fishing in the Scottsburg area and move upstream as the season progresses. A nice 40-pound springer was recently caught in the Elkton area. The mainstem Umpqua is closed to trout fishing until the spring trout opener May 24.

North - Remember all wild steelhead must be released unharmed. Through the end of February over 5,700 steelhead have been counted, which puts the count on par with the last two years when over 12,000 winter steelhead were counted. The first springer passed Winchester Dam on March 16. More will be arriving with the increase in water temperatures.

South - The South Umpqua is open for winter steelhead fishing through April 30. The South Umpqua is then closed to all fishing until May 24. Most hatchery steelhead return to the South Umpqua, so anglers interested in harvesting a hatchery fish will be most successful in the South. The rain has improved conditions on the South. Both bank and boat anglers have been doing well and a good number of hatchery fish have been caught recently, especially between Canyonville and Lawson Bar.
