Fall Chinook fishing continues to be slow on the Siletz

Siletz River - Lincoln City, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Summer steelhead fishing typically picks up in the fall when the water temperatures cool down and we get small amounts of rain. October can be great month to catch summer steelhead with minimal crowds. The peak for summer steelhead is typically June-August.

Fall Chinook fishing continues to be slow on the Siletz. Fish are now distributed throughout the estuary waiting for significant rain. Salmon fishing should be steady through October and should improve when we get significant rain which is in the forecast for the next week.

Wild coho retention closed on Oct. 15 on the Siletz River. All wild Coho will have to be released for the remainder of the season.

Cutthroat trout are also abundant and available throughout the Siletz basin, check the regulations for opens areas and bag limits. Trout fishing in streams closes on Oct. 31.
