: SILETZ RIVER: Summer steelhead fishing is fair in the upper river. Low flows and warming river temperatures are making new fish race up into the cooler holding waters of the gorge area. New fish will continually be moving into the river through the summer with peak numbers typically in July. River flows are much lower than normal for this time of year so think small and subtle presentations. Typical steelhead tactics apply such as bobber and jig / bait, or casting spoons or spinners.

The Siletz River is approximately 70 miles
long and drains a good of the Oregon Coast Range between Newport and Lincoln
City. Very little of this river is in public
ownership, however, and abundance of boat ramps makes this river very fishable
