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 high and off-color recently, with a few reports of steelhead being caught at Cleveland Rapids. Steelhead fishing should start to pick up when the river drops, but plunking will be successful in the higher water conditions.

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 throughout the North Umpqua, though fishing was reported as being slow this past week and weekend as river conditions came back into shape. More rain is forecasted for the coming week which may limit fishing opportunities, but some warm rain may get the fish in the biting mood so watch the river gauges (North Umpqua River water levels at Winchester Dam) and consider getting out on the early rise and later drop.

The South Umpqua opened to winter steelhead fishing on Dec. 1 upstream to Jackson Creek. Only adipose fin-clipped steelhead may be retained.

Steelhead are being caught up to Canyonville and anglers are hooking into a few hatchery fish. River levels have been high with relatively high turbidity which limited fishing opportunities last week. More rain is being predicted for the coming week so keep an eye on the river gauges for potential opportunities to get out.

About: - The Umpqua River, is one of America's premier fishing rivers. Originating at Diamond Lake in the Cascade Mountains, the Umpqua flows through the Oregon Coast Range to meet the Pacific Ocean near Reedsport Oregon. 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.
