Winter steelhead fishing has slowed with the recent flood conditions throughout the coast. Drier conditions later this week will have the river on the drop and fish on the move. Expect steelhead fishing to pick up on the Alsea after the high water especially on the popular NF Alsea. Next week the river should be in prime shape for the drift boaters throughout the system.

****Reminder****The popular winter steelhead bank fishery around the Alsea Hatchery remains open but the hatchery grounds are closed to the public. Anglers are required to park in the designated parking lot to access the river and are not allowed to park near or enter the hatchery grounds. Please be respectful of the hatchery staff and follow these rules to ensure this popular fishery remains open for the 2020/2021 season.

Cutthroat trout fishing closed for the season on Oct. 31.
