Siletz River

Rating - Fair   

Tuesday, Oct 01 2019
Fall Chinook fishing has still been slow on the Siletz River. Fish are being caught everyday but overall it has been slow. The recent weather change and some rain should get things stirred up and improve the fishing. Mid-September is typically when things start to pick up and continue to improve through September and October.Due to low forecasted fall Chinook returns, this years daily bag limit has been reduced to 1 wild Chinook per day and 5 per year for the mid-coast aggregate aggregate (Siletz River to Siuslaw River).No wild coho retention for the 2019 season.The Siletz River is open year-round for steelhead. Summer steelhead fishing continues to be slow but should improve with the recent rains. The fall rains get the summer steelhead active again and often they go on the bite after a little rain.Anglers are catching summer steelhead throughout the system but the best fishing is in the Moonshine and gorge areas. The summer steelhead fishery peaks in June through July/August and then continues to produce fish until the heavy rains come in the fall.Hatchery fish are released at Twin Bridges and Moonshine Park. Many anglers fish the upper gorge area for these hard fighting fish. Bobber fishing with jigs/bait, casting lures, and drift fishing are great techniques to catch a Siletz summer steelhead.The 4.0 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.Trout fishing is open until Oct. 31. Late summer and fall are typically good times to target the sea-run cutthroat on many coastal streams including the Siletz River. Check the regulations for open areas and gear restrictions.
