North Santiam River - Big Cliff to South Santiam

Tip of the week 

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 1700 cfs (at Mehama) and are predicted to be at 1700 cfs by the weekend after a bump to 2200 mid-week. These are great levels for both fishing and boating.

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