The mainstem has decent water conditions this week

Umpqua River - Roseburg, OR (Douglas County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The mainstem has decent water conditions this week but may get muddy by the weekend. Steelhead season has slowed greatly in the mainstem, but anglers are catching a few spring Chinook throughout the mainstem. ‌

Some anglers have started fishing for early season bass, and reportedly getting some large smallmouth. Early warm days are a great chance to catch some great bass. There is no bag limit on bass caught in the Umpqua. There are a few reports of some striped bass being caught in the lower sections.‌

There is NO HARVEST OF WILD ADULT OR JACK SPRING CHINOOK in the Umpqua this year. The river remains open for hatchery Chinook through June 1. Fall seasons have not yet been finalized.
