Access may be limited due to impacts from last summer’s wildfires. The section from Steamboat Creek to Susan Creek is closed to access by the Forest Service. Sections of Bureau of Land Management lands also are closed. 

Steelhead fishing is entering the shoulder season. Summer steelhead are yet to arrive and winters are on their way out. There are likely still some late winters or early summers around.

Anglers have been trying their luck at catching some spring Chinook, but it looks slow. Most anglers are bobber fishing with eggs, shrimp or a combo. Remember to adhere to the anti-snagging rule in effect above Lone Rock Boat Ramp.

Some of the North Umpqua and tributaries are open for trout (those above Slide Creek Dam). These areas may be tough to access during the winter months. Check the fishing regulations to see which areas are open. 

Note that as of Oct 1, fishing in the fly water area is restricted to the use of a single, barbless, artificial fly.
