Santiam River Fishing Report

Santiam River North Fork-2 - Lyons, OR (Marion County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

As of Dec. 31, flows were over 5,000 cfs at the Mehama gauge.  Wet weather is expected for most of this week which should keep flows too high for effective fishing.  River levels best for fishing are at or below 3,000 cfs.
Most anglers are targeting the few remaining summer steelhead and coho salmon that have not yet spawned.  Another small group of coho also pushed into the upper Willamette a few weeks ago and some of these fish will be heading into the North Santiam.
The river is now closed to trout.  It will reopen on May 22.
Anglers can keep up to 2 adult coho below the Stayton-Scio bridge any time of year and above the bridge after Oct. 15.
