Umpqua River Fish Report for 2-24-2022
Umpqua River Fishing Report
Umpqua River - Roseburg, OR (Douglas County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
UMPQUA RIVER, MAINSTEM:
Steelhead fishing has slowed as the river has gotten low and clear. With no rain in the forecast steelhead are likely not as interested in biting. Anglers may want to try a few different methods to see if something different might entice the fish.
Chinook should be around in the lower river, but most anglers don’t start fishing till March. In 2022, no retention is allowed for wild jack or adult spring Chinook in the main. Hatchery harvest is allowed as per permanent rule.
Anglers who catch a hatchery winter steelhead are asked to turn in the snouts at one of the collection barrels. Those whose snout contains a tag are entered into a monthly raffle for a $50 gift certificate to Sportsman’s Warehouse!
Trout fishing is closed in the mainstem and tributaries.
UMPQUA RIVER, NORTH:
Anglers a still catching, but the numbers are getting lower. With low water most anglers are starting to focus lower down in the river.
With the low population of summers, anglers are reminded to handle fish with extra care this year. Summer steelhead that have finished spawning will try and make their way back to the ocean. Practicing good catch-and-release techniques will help ensure we have fish in the future.
Anglers who catch a hatchery winter steelhead are asked to turn in the snouts at one of the collection barrels. Those who’s snout contains a tag are entered into a monthly raffle for a $50 gift certificate to Sportsman’s Warehouse!
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.
