Conditions : UMPQUA RIVER: The mainstem Umpqua is closed to wild steelhead harvest, but remains open year-round for adipose fin-clipped steelhead. Please note the changes in regulations this year on page 33 of the 2016 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations booklet. 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.

Chinook fishing has been pretty slow in the tidewater portions of the mainstem. There have been reports of good numbers of coho being caught in the lower Umpqua and please remember that only hatchery coho may be harvested.

Smallmouth bass angling should offer excellent harvest opportunities into the fall months.

Trout fishing is catch-and-release only in the mainstem and closed Sept. 15 in the tributaries.

North - Chinook fishing on the North Umpqua closed on June 30. Summer steelhead angling has slowed down but there are still hatchery summer steelhead harvest opportunities around Rock Creek and in the fly water. Please remember all wild steelhead must be released unharmed.

The South Umpqua closes from Sept. 16 through Nov. 30 to protect spawning fall Chinook salmon.

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
