Elk River - Port Orford, OR (Curry County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

This is one of the best rivers to fish steelhead when there are frequent storms. The river usually clears pretty quickly after a storm. There is very limited bank access, so anglers with drift boats tend to do the best. Anglers can check the river gage height at Elk River Hatchery by calling 541-332-0405.
