Fishing Report
April 24, 2014
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 South Umpqua from late January through April. Springers have started to arrive. Most anglers will start fishing in the Scottsburg area and move upstream as the season progresses. A nice 40-pound springer was recently caught in the Elkton area. Water temperatures have dropped this week and the forecast is for an increase in flows by Friday. This should help boat access, but may slow the bite. The shad should start arriving by early May. Smallmouth bass fishing will improve as the river warms up. The mainstem Umpqua is closed to trout fishing until the spring trout opener May 24. 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.
