UMPQUA RIVER, Year round Steelhead Fishing? Except perhaps April and May, you can find Steelhead running this fantastic fishery
.Hit it for shad or smallmouth bass, Chinook Salmon, Cutthroat even Sturgeon or Striped Bass. Umpqua's main section is closed to wild steelhead but open year-round to hatchery steelhead.
Sections are the North, South and Main Stem. Check current regulations for special information.
Spring: The steelhead season peaks in March.
Summer: Summer steelhead start entering the Umpqua River in mid-June.
Fall: Fall is the best time for summer run steelhead that peak during this time.
Winter: Wintertime is the best time to catch large Umpqua steelhead. Winter steelhead should start to pickup with dropping river levels and springtime approaches.
The South Umpqua opens to winter steelhead fishing on Dec. 1st,  all the way upstream but no further than Jackson Creek. Hatchery only may be possessd.

Where to fish the Umpqua:

The Lower section of the Umpqua River, is 110 miles long, it's mouth at Winchester Bay.
At more than 100 miles in length each, the North Umpqua River and the South Umpqua River
both flow out from the Cascades. Refer to our fishing report and fishing map for more information.
The North Umpqua is world renowned for its salmon and steelhead fishing.  Sea-run cutthroats also from June to November. The North Umpqua River summer run steelhead is unique, dry fly fishing is not only possible but effective.
The South Umpqua joins the North Umpqua at Roseburg. It's warm waters make it good for stripped bass there is a extremely good small mouth bass fishery.
The Main Sections offer both a winter and summer steelhead run and a spring and fall salmon
run.

Techniques and How to fish the Umpqua:

 The North Umpqua’s has a fly fishing section has large boulders and basalt drop offs. Long casts are often needed, a Spey rod here is best, using big flies.
Check for some interesting regulations. No strike indicators, no weight on the fly or leader June to September.
 Try dry flies for  summer fish. However, change to a heavy wet line large leech if fish not rising to the dry fly.
It has been said winter or spring fish do not respond to dries even if conditions are summer like. February is when fishing gets good, reaching its zenith in March.
Wet lines should be sinking shooting heads, tapered tips. Large wet flies, leeches, shrimp patterns are the best choices here.
