Winter steelhead fishing continues to be decent on the Alsea. Moderate rain has kept the river in fishable shape for most of last week and into this week. Fish are continuing to be caught throughout the system but the numbers back to Alsea hatchery are low. Moderate rainfall and river levels will provide good conditions for the upcoming week. Steelhead fishing will continue to improve as the later wild broodstock fish start to show up in better numbers in January and February. The Alsea still gets a good amount of the early returning stock that peaks in December and January, as well as a later stock that peaks in February and March. Expect more fish to show up with each rise in the river level from now through April. Bobber fishing with jigs/bait, drift fishing, and casting lures are all effective ways to catch these hard fighting fish. Trout fishing in streams will reopen May 22, 2019.

MCKENZIE RIVER below Leaburg Lake (R1): trout, salmon, steelhead Was last stocked the week of September 3 with 3,000 legal hatchery rainbow trout. All non-adipose fin-clipped trout must be released unharmed. Check page 46 of the 2018 Sport Fishing Regulations for bait restrictions in the segment you plan to fish. Beginning Nov. 1, anglers may only use lures and artificial flies. Fishing continues to be pretty good for summer steelhead downstream of Leaburg Dam. No new fish were captured at McKenzie Hatchery this week, so the total return to the hatchery this year stands at 4,377 spring Chinook and 216 summer steelhead for the year. The lower McKenzie River is open to retention of adipose fin-clipped salmon and steelhead and non-adipose fin-clipped steelhead greater than 24-inches long. A Columbia River Basin Endorsement is required for anglers targeting salmon and steelhead in the McKenzie. MCKENZIE RIVER above Leaburg Lake (R2): trout, steelhead The McKenzie River above Leaburg Lake was last stocked the week of Sept. 10 with 3,850 legal-size hatchery rainbow trout. All non-adipose fin-clipped trout must be released unharmed. Bait is allowed from Leaburg Dam to Forest Glen Boat Ramp from April 22 ? Oct 31. As of Nov. 1, anglers may use only lures and artificial flies.

SANTIAM RIVER (NORTH FORK): steelhead, Chinook As of Jan. 8, flows were over 4,300 cfs at the Mehama gauge. Wet weather is expected for most of this week which should keep flows too high for effective fishing. River levels best for fishing are at or below 3,000 cfs. Most anglers are targeting the few remaining summer steelhead and coho salmon that have not yet spawned. The coho run is over for this year, but a few winter steelhead are beginning to move into the river. The river is now closed to trout. It will reopen on May 22. Anglers can keep up to 2 adult coho below the Stayton-Scio bridge any time of year and above the bridge after Oct. 15. Currently flows are at 3,850 cfs as of Jan. 8 and should stay fairly high all week. In these conditions, fishing becomes very challenging. There are still a few summer steelhead in the river at the moment, most of these above Waterloo. Over 9,000 fish have navigated up Willamette Falls and a fair number of these have made it into the South Santiam. Just over 1,390 summer steelhead have entered the ladder at Foster as of Nov. 19. Summer steelhead can be found throughout the upper basin below Foster Reservoir, especially above Waterloo Park. Fishing is generally best below 3,000 cfs. The entire river is now closed to trout fishing. It will re-open on May 22.

The Nestucca River has two different hatchery winter steelhead stocks, one of which is early returning, and most prevalent in the lower river and Three Rivers which return late November through the end of January. In contrast the broodstock hatchery fish return late December through mid April, and should now be throughout the basin. January is a great month to be on the Nestucca as both of these stocks are coming in as well as wild steelhead (catch-and-release only). Last weekend there was heavy pressure on the Nestucca, but some fish were caught. For this week is looks like the Nestucca will be a little high mid-week, but should be back in shape for the weekend. All the usual techniques are working, with the higher flows and some color stick to the larger, brighter presentations. Three Rivers will continue to fish well this week. Fishing has been fairly decent, and Cedar Creek Hatchery has recycled 132 hatchery steelhead that came into the trap back to Pacific City in the past two weeks (70 last week and 62 this week). New fish should be coming in as well. Trout fishing in streams will reopen May 22, 2019.

Winter steelhead has been fair so far on the Siletz. Fish are being caught everyday but overall it has been on the slow side. Moderate rainfall and river levels should keep the river fishing well this week and into the weekend. 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. Trout fishing in streams will reopen May 22, 2019. The 3.5 mile bridge (aka Steel Bridge) in the Siletz gorge is open to motorized vehicles, but is only open to public vehicles on the weekend. Anglers can walk/bike in the road during the weekdays. If anglers do walk in they can park at the one mile gate and start from there.

Fish passage at Willamette Falls is still pretty slow, although a few winter steelhead made the crossing over the past week. Catch-and-release sturgeon fishing is a good option on the lower Willamette and can be productive this time of year. The ODFW fishing dock on the river bank below the old West Linn Police Station is a good prospect for those who want to try catch-and-release sturgeon fishing from the shore. Kelly Point Park is another popular spot on the lower Willamette for some good catch-and-release sturgeon fishing. Remember to use single, barbless hooks. Warmwater fishing can also be a viable alternative in the lower Willamette, Multnomah Channel and surrounding sloughs. Successful warmwater anglers tend to fish around bridges, pilings, wing dams, and other structures, which can be good spots to find warmwater fish. Hydrological data for the Willamette at Willamette Falls onJan. 7 showed flows at 21,700 cfs, the water temperature at 42� F, and visibility at 4.5 ft. Salmon boats in the Oregon City area indicate some fishing effort there.

The Wilson River has two different hatchery winter steelhead stocks, one of which is early returning, and most prevalent in the lower river, and return late November through the end of January. In contrast the broodstock hatchery fish return late December through mid April, and should now be throughout the basin. January is a great month to be on the Wilson as both of these stocks are coming in as well as wild steelhead (catch-and-release only). Fishing was a little slow last weekend, but pressure was light. The Wilson should be in prime shape next weekend if the weather predictions hold. All the usual techniques are working, with the higher flows and some color stick to the larger, brighter presentations. Trout fishing in streams will reopen May 22, 2019.
