Winter steelhead has been fair on the Siuslaw system to date. A few fish are being caught every day when the conditions are good. The Siuslaw River is dropping into good shape this week and conditions should be good until the next big rain event hits on Thursday. Best fishing has been around Whitaker Creek for both the bank and boat anglers. Lake Creek is low and clear and will benefit from the forecasted rains later in the week, expect fish to be on the move after the next storm.  Hatchery fish in the Siuslaw system return to Whitaker Creek (Siuslaw) and Green Creek (Lake Creek). Bobber fishing with bait/jigs, drift fishing, and casting lures are good techniques to catch a Siuslaw winter steelhead.
