UMPQUA RIVER, MAINSTEM:

Bass fishing is slowing, but anglers are still catching.

Chinook fishing will be winding down as the fish have started moving upriver to spawn. The Mainstem is restricted to one wild adult Chinook per day and five per year. There is no retention of wild coho in the Umpqua this year. Please practice good catch-and-release techniques with fish that are not retained.

Trout fishing will close Oct. 31 in the main and all its tributaries.

UMPQUA RIVER, NORTH:

Anglers are still wondering, but the North and tributaries from the confluence with the South to the marker below Soda Springs is still closed to all fishing through Nov. 30. This closure is in response to the lowest return of summer steelhead on record. Trout fishing is open year-round upstream of Slide Creek Dam and in tributaries in this section. Fishing above Slide Creek Dam can be a great idea before the snow hits.

Learn more about this closure. Last updated 10/27/21

UMPQUA RIVER, SOUTH: CLOSED

The South closes every year from Sept. 16 through Nov. 30 to protect spawning Chinook. The river reopens for steelhead on Dec. 1.
