River Will Be Dropping into Shape Quickly

Siletz River - Lincoln City, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Winter steelheading has slowed down due to the recent flood conditions. The river will be dropping into shape quickly and will be in good shape for the weekend and next week.  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.
