The Smith often clears faster than other rivers in the Umpqua. Steelhead should be found throughout the river up the deadline at Sisters Creek. The Smith is a great catch-and-release fishery.

Trout season is closed until May 22.

The Smith sees only light pressure for most of the season and can provide a great experience for anglers looking to get away from the crowds.
