River flows have dropped and are now around 150 cfs

Breitenbush River - Detroit, OR (Marion County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The Forest Service Road (FR 46) up the Breitenbush River has re-opened. River flows have dropped and are now around 150 cfs. Flows below 200 cfs are ideal. It was stocked several times over the summer and many of these fish should still be available. Fly-fishing techniques such as nymphing are likely to produce more action than other methods.‌

Anglers may see spawning or spawned out salmon in the river above Detroit. Please give these fish enough distance to complete their life cycle. Also, don't allow dogs to consume salmon carcasses as these contain a toxin that can be lethal to dogs
