High Water Has Been Making it Difficult to Get Out There

Siuslaw River - Florence, OR (Lane County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Winter steelhead fishing continues to be slow on the Siuslaw and the high water is making it difficult to get out there. The river will be dropping into shape over the weekend and into next week and should help improve the fishing. The Siuslaw typically peaks in February and starts to slow down in March. The Whitaker Creek area is the best place to target returning hatchery fish.

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.
