Default Umpqua Oregon

UMPQUA ESTUARY: Sturgeon fishing has been very good in the estuary. The high winter flows have pushed a lot of food into the bay and moved the crabs out temporarily. Striper fishing will begin to pick up by the end of this month.

UMPQUA RIVER MAINSTEM: Fishing was slow early in the week but picked up as water temperatures increased. Forty three fish were checked last week; most of these fish were caught between 10am and 3pm . As flows continue to drop, the best fishing will occur when water temperatures warm up during the late morning hours. The weather forecast is calling for dry weather which will allow the river to continue to drop. Boat fishing will be good this week, with plunking slowing down some with the lower water flows and cooler water temperatures. Spin-n-glos are the favored lure and can be used effectively with or without bait.

UMPQUA RIVER, NORTH: Fishing improved steadily through the week. Most of the fishing occurred from drift boats in the Glide area. Numbers of steelhead were also being caught in the North Umpqua near Winchester Dam. Fishing will be good when water temperatures warm enough to make the steelhead active. Best bank fishing is occurring in the Idleyld Park area. Al l drift boat slides are currently open, although four wheel drive is necessary at the Gravel takeout.

UMPQUA RIVER, SOUTH: Winter steelhead fishing in the Canyonville area continues to be good. Hatchery winter steelhead continue to harvested in good numbers near Stanton Park. Bank fishing in this area was been shoulder to shoulder last week. Drift boats have been putting in just above Canyonville and at Lawson Bar and catching good numbers of hatchery fish. The South Umpqua remains impassable by boat at the Shady Bridge . It is hoped that the river will be passable to boats by mid February. Wild steelhead must be released unharmed from the South Umpqua River . Hatchery clipped steelhead only may be retained.
