: Alsea River: The chinook fishery is very slow. Nearly all chinook have moved onto the spawning grounds and very few new bright fish move in this time of year. The new permanent salmon fishing deadline is at Rivers Edge Park boat ramp.
The winter steelhead run is just getting underway. Steelhead should start to show up through most of the river but as river conditions get low and clear, anglers should focus efforts in the lower river. Casting spinners or drifting jigs or bait and plunking at higher flows can be effective techniques.
