The wild coho season below Scottsburg Bridge was closed Oct. 2. There are still some hatchery coho moving through the system and fall chinook. Only fin-clipped adult and jack coho can now be harvested. The upstream fishery between Osprey and River Forks is still providing some fall Chinook harvest opportunity but this season is beginning to wind down as lots of fish have pushed upstream into the South Umpqua (which is currently closed to fishing) to spawn. Most of the chinook are fairly dark now.

The mainstem Umpqua is closed to wild steelhead harvest, but remains open year-round for adipose fin-clipped steelhead. This fishery is primarily catch-and-release since the number of hatchery fish is relatively low compared to the number of wild fish. People interested in harvesting a steelhead should fish the North Umpqua for summer steelhead. Trout fishing in the tributaries to the mainstem closes Sept. 16. The mainstem will close to trout fishing starting Nov. 1.

The “50 Places to go fishing within 60 minutes of Roseburg,” handout which is available online or at the office, identifies several good places for salmon and steelhead fishing.
