Siuslaw River - Florence, OR (Lane County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Winter steelhead fishing continues to be slow on the Siuslaw despite the good river conditions. It has been a slow season on the Siuslaw but there are still some fish around and few are being caught each day. 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.
