Salmon River Fishing Report

Salmon River - Otis, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Winter steelhead will continue to enter the Salmon River system through the month of February as the later returning wild fish start to show up from now through March.  The Salmon River has no hatchery releases and is entirely a wild run. These fish will start to enter the system in December but the peak is January through March. Bobber fishing with jigs/bait and casting lures are great techniques to catch a Salmon River winter steelhead.
