The Siletz River and bay is open for Chinook salmon. Fishing is slow. 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. Winter steelhead opportunities are improving. River flows are high but are forecast to recede later in the week. Casting spinners, drifting bait or using a bobber and jig can be effective.
