Winter steehead will start to show up in the Siuslaw system in December and typically peak in January and February. The Whitaker Creek area on the Siuslaw is the best location to target the returning hatchery fish and should improve when we get the next shot of rain which is forecasted for this weekend. No reports of any fish being caught yet.

Hatchery fish are also planted in Lake Creek and are released into Green Creek. These returning hatchery fish will start to show up in December and peak in January and February.
