Idaho Fish Report
Summer steelhead fishing has slowed down with the low water conditions
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Summer steelhead fishing has slowed down with the low water conditions but there are still fresh fish moving into the system and fish holding throughout the system, especially in the upper river sections of the gorge. Summer steelhead will be around to be caught throught August and into the fall months. The peak for summer steelhead is typically June-August.
Fall Chinook fishing is starting to pick up on the Siletz and fish are being caught every day. Fishing will continue to improve as we get closer to September and more fish start to stage in the estuary waiting for some rain.
Cutthroat trout are also abundant and available throughout the Siletz basin, check the regulations for opens areas and bag limits.
