Idaho Fish Report
Winter steelhead typically start showing up in the Siuslaw system in early December
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Winter steelhead typically start showing up in the Siuslaw system in early December. Most of the hatchery fish in the basin are headed to Whitaker Creek and this area provides the best opportunity to catch an early returning winter steelhead. There is also a small hatchery release in Lake Creek (located at Green Creek) that provides some opportunity to catch winter steelhead from Dec-March.
***Reminder*** There is no wild coho retention in the Siuslaw for the 2021 season. Please practice good catch-and-release for wild coho, keep them in the water and release immediately.
Trout fishing in streams will reopen May 22, 2022
