Siletz River - Lincoln City, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Winter steelhead are moving up in the Siletz River. Like the rest of the mid-coast basins fishing has picked up with the recent rains over the past few weeks. We are seeing newer fish push into the system and push higher into the system with the recent rains. Fish have also been seen spawning in the mid-upper mainstem and fishing has remained steady the last two weeks. Going into the weekend the Siletz will be your best bet for winter steelhead. Expect to see a slower decline in fish activity as we move into the next few weeks of April. January-March is the typical peak for winter steelhead fishing on the Siletz River.

Trout fishing in streams will reopen May 22, 2023.
