Oregon Winter Steelhead & Spring Chinook Salmon Fishing
Winter Steelhead Fishing: January – March is some of the best steelhead fishing of the year. We fish for Winter Steelhead on our Oregon Coastal rivers, primarily the Alsea, Nestucka and our favorite the Siletz. Winter steelhead average 8 to 10 pounds, 28 to 30 inches with our personal best of 28 pounds and 44 inches long. We fish from a 16 or 20 foot McKenzie River drift boat, equipped with comfortable seating and a heater for cool days.
We provide all rods, tackle and bait necessary for our fishing day. There are as many techniques to catch a steelhead as there are rivers to fish for them. The key to catching steelhead is to match the techniques with the river, weather and water conditions.
We do our best to fish where the fish are and to match the method of fishing to the conditions of that day, these two things increase your odds tenfold.

A quick personal note from the owner,
"In my humble opinion steelhead are the greatest sports fish swimming in our rivers and winter steelhead are no exception. Steelhead hit hard, fight hard, jump, run, tug and tail dance. Steelheads do it all.
I spend much of my year; winter, summer and fall in pursuit of steelhead and I enjoy every minute of it."
