Umpqua River Fish Report for 3-30-2022
Umpqua River Fishing Report
Umpqua River - Roseburg, OR (Douglas County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
UMPQUA RIVER, NORTH:
Anglers are still doing fairly well with winter steelhead. Some bright fish are in the system as well as downstream migrants.
Some anglers are starting to fish for Chinook, but it is still a bit early. With a good bit of rain the fish should be moving up the river.
Remember only one wild spring Chinook adult per day and ten per season may be kept on the North in 2022.
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.
UMPQUA RIVER, SOUTH:
Anglers have been doing really well with steelhead in the last couple months. Even with low water conditions anglers are still catching a good number of fish.
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!
