Siletz River Report

Siletz River - Lincoln City, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Winter steelheading has been slow on the Siletz River due to the high unfishable water. The dry forecast this week has the river dropping quickly into shape creating great conditions for the first good push of winter steelhead for the season. Expect fish to be distributed throughout the system once the river levels recede. The typical peak for Siletz winter steelhead is January to March.

The 4.0 mile bridge (aka Steel Bridge) in the Siletz gorge is open to motorized vehicles on the weekends only. Anglers can walk/bike in the road during the weekdays. There is a parking area located at the 1-mile gate where anglers can walk/bike upstream from there.
