Alsea River Fishing Report

Alsea River - Alsea, OR

Winter steelhead fishing has slowed down on all sections of the Alsea River. Low water has made for tough conditions throughout the system resulting in slower fishing.

 The later returning hatchery fish will continue to move in through the month of March and provide opportunities to catch a steelhead. Until we get some rain the lower portions of the river will be the best chance for success.

**Reminder**
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.
