Day & Multi-Day Fishing
Winter steelhead are one of Oregon’s greatest sport fish. Steelhead are strong fighters, great jumpers, and simply a beautiful fish!
Nearly all of Oregon’s rivers offer a Winter steelhead run. These amazing fish begin to enter Oregon rivers in November and the run will last through April. January, February, and March are the peak of the season. We fish both the Rogue River, which enters the ocean at Gold Beach, Oregon, and the Siletz River, which enters near Lincoln City, Oregon
We offer Winter steelhead trips on the Siletz in February and March. This is a 1-day trip, fishing from daylight until 2-3 pm. Multi-day trips can be arranged, overnighting in nearby Newport or Lincoln City, Oregon.
We fish from a 17′ Koffler McKenzie River drift boatboat, specially designed for shallow white water and maneuverability. We can accommodate 2 anglers, and multi-boat trips can be arranged for larger groups.
What makes this trip so special? The Siletz is a beautiful coastal river, an easy day trip, and a great opportunity to catch a fabulous Winter Steelhead!
“A lot of people say there is nothing to do in the winter… matter of opinion, I guess. I know that I will never get tired of floating a beautiful coastal river and watching 10 pounds of fighting chrome fly out of the water—end over end. That’s something really awesome to do and I love it”
