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. However, anglers have been catching some hatchery fish for the last couple of weeks. The number of steelhead will increase in the Main throughout the rest of the month. The recent rain has caused the river to rise, but it will be dropping steadily to below 6 feet by the weekend. Plunkers should have some success throughout the season following rain events that cause the steelhead to hug the shoreline.

The Umpqua Fishery Enhancement Derby will be taking place on Jan. 30 and 31. This event raises thousands of dollars for fisheries projects in the Umpqua Basin. There may be more boats than usual on the river.

Spring chinook will start arriving in February and March. Please note the changes in regulations this year on page 40 of the 2015 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 – July 31. From Aug. 1 – Dece. 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 - Remember all wild steelhead must be released unharmed. Fishing for winter steelhead will continue to improve, peaking in February through March. Most of the fish returning to the North are wild so the fishing is mostly catch-and-release. The river should be steadily dropping back to about 4 feet this weekend. The Umpqua Fishery Enhancement Derby will be taking place on Jan. 30 and 31. This event raises thousands of dollars for fisheries projects in the Umpqua Basin. There may be more boats than usual on the river.

South - Although the peak numbers of fish normally show up from February to late March, the recent rains have moved fish into the Canyonville area and hatchery fish have been reported. The South Umpqua offers the best chance for catching an adipose-fin clipped steelhead for harvest. The hatchery program for winter steelhead is centered in the South Umpqua.

Most hatchery fish are caught from Canyonville downstream. All wild fish must be released unharmed. Plunking should be good at places such as Lawson Bar, Myrtle Creek and behind Seven Feathers. The Umpqua Fishery Enhancement Derby will be taking place on Jan. 30 and 31. This event raises thousands of dollars for fisheries projects in the Umpqua Basin. There may be more boats than usual on the river.
