There is a Good Mix of Hatchery and Wild Fish Being Caught

Siletz River - Lincoln City, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Winter steelhead fishing has slowed down on the Siletz with the cold weather and clearing water. The Siletz River did not get the rain that the Alsea and south coast rivers received over the weekend. It remains on the drop and is starting to get low and clear. Expect more the same this week until the weather warms up and we get more rain. There is a good mix of hatchery and wild fish being caught throughout the system. Numbers of wild and hatchery fish should continue to improve, as we get closer to the peak of the run in February and March. 

Anglers are starting to catch more wild fish in the basin as well, remember to handle these wild fish with care and immediately release them back into the river. January is typically when things heat up and continue through March/April. Side drifting, bobber dogging, bobber fishing with jigs, and casting lures are all great techniques to catch winter steelhead.
