Siletz River Fishing
URL: Siletz River Fishing
The Siletz River offers year-round fishing with good accessibility. It flows from the Siuslaw National Forest of the Central Oregon Coast Range, towards Siletz Bay. A Chinook salmon run begins in late June and runs through November. Coho also run from September onwards. The river also teems with huge steelhead in the summer and winter seasons, and you may catch coastal cutthroat trout here too.
This windy river offers several spots where you can fish by boat. The most popular areas lie inland between Moonshine Park and Jack Morgan County Park. The city of Siletz offers a boat launch and parking. You may want to hire a guide, because conditions can vary wildly and they know the best areas and bait to use. If you want to set out on your own, the lower river rents boats and fishing equipment. The Siletz River crosses Highway 101.
