Fall Chinook fishing has slowed down on the Alsea

Alsea River - Alsea, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fall Chinook fishing has slowed down on the Alsea with the recent high water and most of the fish are headed to the spawning grounds upstream of the salmon deadlines. There are still a few fish around and will provide some opportunity through mid-November but things are slowing down for the 2021 season. The lower portion of the river below Five Rivers is the best chance to catch a bright Chinook at the end of the season.


There is no wild coho retention in the Alsea for the 2021 season. Please practice good catch-and-release for wild coho, keep them in the water and release immediately.

Trout fishing in streams closed on Oct. 31.
