Fishing is generally best when flows are below 3,000 cfs. Currently flows are around 2,100 cfs at the Waterloo gauge.

Steelhead fishing is open year-round. The first few dozen summer steelhead of 2022 have started to arrive at Willamette Falls, but it will be at least another month before they can be reliably targeted in the South Santiam.

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.
