Spring Chinook & Summer Steelhead now Arriving on Upper Willamette Tributaries- McKenzie - Willamette Middle Fork - Santiam

Friend Russ Matthews with a healthy, hard-fighting "Springer" he landed on our trip this past thursday. With 16,000 plus Spring Chinook and 5,500 plus Summer Steelhead now past the Willamette Falls Counting Station, we can expect more new arrivals daily through June, July and beyond. These fish will provide some fun local summer sport as we have 3 different major tributaries to the Main Willamette River in close driving distance to the the Eugene-Springfield area of the southern Willamettte Valley.

Winter Steelhead Fishing Will Continue through March and Even April on Certain River Systems

Certain Oregon rivers allow for an extended winter steelhead season beyond the standard March 31 closure on designated portions. Some are even open year-round to steelhead fishing.

Reports of decent steelhead fishing surfaced up and down the coast in early January. As the early rains of 2013 diminished and gave way to a short cold snap, the bite layed down a tad. Recent rains over the last few days should now provide a welcome jump start and packs of new fish should be pushing through soon.
