The Siletz river is open year around but is species specific. It's a great spot for Chinook Salmon runs and boasts a native cutthroat trout population. If you're chasing steelhead the best times are between December and March; the fall run starts in September and runs through November. When fishing the Siletz river it's important to remember that a majority of the land surrounding the river is private, which means a drift boat is your only option for some sections of this river. If you're looking for bank access on the Siletz be sure to check out Strome County State Park (this is where the tide stops), Jack County, Ojalla Park or Old Mill Site Parks.
Be sure to check the Fishing Regulations and Emergency Rules for this area.
