Santiam River (South Fork) - Sweet Home, OR (Linn County)

Fishing is generally best when flows are below 3,000 cfs. Currently flows are around 3,750 cfs at the Waterloo gauge.
Steelhead fishing is open year-round. The first few hundred summer steelhead of 2022 have started to arrive at Willamette Falls, including a few that have made it to the base of Foster dam, but it will be at least another few weeks 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.
