Guided Umpqua River Steelhead Trips

Umpqua River Steelhead

The Umpqua Rivers sport a healthy run of very large Steelhead, with the average fish being 9 to 12 pounds and fish in the high teens very common. Twenty plus pound Steelhead are found on these rivers weekly. The South Umpqua also sports a very healthy return of hatchery fish every year. I normally start fishing the Main Umpqua in mid to late December, with January and February being the best times. I start fishing the North and South forks of the Umpqua in late January, and the best times are February and March. Like the coastal streams, these rivers are weather dependant for best fishing conditions.
