Alsea River Fish Report for 2-26-2020
Winter Steelhead Continues to be Fair
Alsea River - Alsea, OR
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Winter steelhead fishing continues to be fair on the bank sections of the Alsea but has been good for the drift boaters in the boat portions of the river. The popular NF Alsea fishery continues to produce fish but it is low and clear making things tougher.
The mainstem Alsea is in great shape and has been producing fish for the last couple of weeks. The lower portions of the river are producing best for the drift boats.
With more dry weather in the forecast, expect more of the same this week until we get some more rain forecasted for next week. The later returning wild broodstock fish are showing up and will provide good opportunity through March.
No overnight camping is allowed in vehicles around the NF Alsea hatchery in the parking lot or on any of the roads.
The Alsea River receives two different stocks of hatchery steelhead, one “traditional” stock that is an early returner and peaks in December/January and a later returning wild broodstock that peaks January-March. These two stocks combine to provide winter steelhead fishing opportunities from late November through March.
Trout fishing in streams will reopen on May 22, 2020.
