The weekend rains may have established this seasons run of winter steelhead. All coastal steams, ( Alsea, Siuslaw, Siletz) had been fishing well prior to the recent rains. Anglers should find fish spread through out the system.
Indicator fishing has been the proven winner, but for those “who swing”, have had positive results as well. Positive results have come from egg patterns, mole leaches, and the infamous “lowly glowly“.
With additional showers forecasted for the weekend, the long range outlook for winter steelhead is very good….get out there!
