Lots and lots of rain this season has made Winter Steelheading a challenge. It seems that just as the rivers start to drop into decent levels and clarity for fishing, in comes another storm along with another deluge of water to muddy things up. If Mother Nature waves her wand and gives you a short opportunity, you better take it as it might just be a one day squeeze.

Large Winter Steelhead are often available in the Month of March. Once in a while everything comes together with dropping river levels after a freshet and even some sunshine can all cumulate into magical March memories. Meanwhile, such rivers as the Umpqua and the Columbia are among the large systems already producing the coveted Spring Chinook salmon.

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.
The Upper McKenzie should fish well for pan-fry planter trout over Memorial Day and throughout the weekSubmitted by John Gross on 28 May 2011 - 1:09pm.

We have entered the final stretch for winter steelhead fishing on most of our coastal streams. A few select rivers offer prolonged opportunity for some continued steelhead fishing beyond the general March 31st cutoff. Numerous rivers and sections of some rivers remain open to steelhead fishing year-round. The Rogue, the Umpqua, and the Siletz fall into this category. The Whitaker Run on the Siuslaw remains open through April 15, while the South Fork of the Coquille stays open through April 30. Winter steelhead fishing on the Siuslaw however, has slowed considerably.
