The Lower River Has Been in Good Shape

Alsea River - Alsea, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Winter steelhead fishing was fair last week on the Alsea and looks to be the same for the upcoming week and weekend.  Warmer weather and some rain will warm up the water temperatures, which should get fish moving and increase their activity.  The popular NF Alsea fishery is very low and clear and has been slow.  The lower river has been in good shape and the drift boaters have been catching a few fish every day.  Numbers are still low at Alsea hatchery but the fishing continues to be fair overall.

The later returning right maxillary clipped fish will continue to return through the month of March and into April.
