Santiam River (South Fork) - Sweet Home, OR (Linn County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Fishing is generally best when flows are below 3,000 cfs. Currently flows are around 6,100 cfs at the Waterloo gage. Fishing under these conditions is extremely difficult.
Steelhead fishing is open year-round. The run this year is disappointing, but fish are still around, primarily from Waterloo Park upstream to the dam.
Trout harvest is now closed until May 22. Fishing with bait is only allowed between April 22 and Oct 31. Anglers are reminded that only fin-clipped trout may be kept.
