UMPQUA RIVER, MAINSTEM REPORT
Most anglers are finished with steelhead and moving on to spring Chinook, but don’t forget to turn in hatchery winter steelhead snouts for a chance to win a gift card (see note below.)
Bass fishing is picking up with warmer temperatures and bass preparing to spawn.
No recent reports of springers. Most Chinook anglers plunk and use either a spinner, bait or both.
Consider using gear that will be less harmful to fish that need to be released. Tactics such as using single point hooks and artificial lures may ensure a higher survival of wild fish after release.
Trout fishing will reopen May 22. Last updated 4/7/21.
