Fisheries in limbo, winter steelhead will start soon
From our Friend Tim Moran:
SW Oregon Fishing Report – Down in the SW corner of the state, the Elk and Chetco were waiting for rains to improve conditions for both winter steelhead and late fall/ winter Chinook. As we turn the page into the new year both of these rivers should fish well especially for steelhead.
There are fish entering the Umpqua River too but fishing is just beginning to pick up. Again, January fishing for winter steelhead should be excellent so make your plans!
Diamond Lake as of a couple days ago was not fully iced over so it’s not going to be fishable until it ices up solid. When it does, fishing through the ice is always fun and can be productive!
Enjoy your holiday and hopefully you can get out and enjoy some winter fishing after Christmas (or maybe on)! Stay safe and warm!
