North Santiam River - Big Cliff to South Santiam

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Steelhead: Classic Wet Fly Swing in runs and tailouts, Indicator Nymphing through boulder fields.

Trout: Indicator Nymphing through current seams and riffles. Some spontaneous dry fly action at times.

Seven-day forecast 

Flows are currently around 4,900 cfs (at Mehama) and are predicted to drop to 2,800 cfs by the weekend. These are great levels for both fishing and boating with the river dropping and clearing. Get out there before Mother Nature throws us another curve!

Winter steelhead and holdover summer steelhead that are in great shape are in the system now.
