The Siletz River and bay is open for Chinook salmon. Fishing is slow. Fish are throughout the bay and river. With the recent rain the river was high but has come into shape. Trolling herring in the lower bay is an effective technique. Eggs and bobber or drifting eggs can be productive in the upper bay and river as the season progresses. Consult the regulations for changes in deadline locations through the season.

Steelhead fishing is slow. The majority of available fish are in the upper Siletz gorge. Casting spinners, drifting bait or using a bobber and jig can be effective. For cutthroat trout, casting small spinners, spoons or fly fishing streamers or dry flies can be very effective.
