Recent warmer rains have brought an end to a prolonged cold and dry spell here in Western Oregon.  These freshets helped to improve winter steelhead fishing on area streams, raising and warming the water, and drawing new fish into various river systems.

The weather forecast predicts intermittent rains over the next week, which should keep river conditions hovering at a very fishable level.

Winter steelhead runs have been good so far this year on many of Oregon’s coastal streams.  Throughout much of January, we enjoyed good water conditions and some great fishing.  With two months left to go in the coastal steelhead season, we have a lot more to look forward to.
