See the "Take it with you ..." section in the left hand menu.
Winter steelhead are one of Oregon’s most prized game fish – and one of the most challenging to catch. But the promise of large hard-fighting fish, fresh from the ocean, lures many anglers to brave the cold, wet conditions in search of a trophy.
This 2013 Guide offers the novice steelhead angler an overview of where and when to fish. For the more experienced angler, the Guide also includes updates on access, regulation changes and other changes that could affect fishing.
For updates on current conditions, such as water levels and fishing success, consult ODFW’s weekly Recreation Report.
Anglers also should consult the 2013 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations for a complete list of relevant rules and regulations. Pick up a copy at most license dealers or view them on-line.
