North Santiam River - Big Cliff to South Santiam

Tip of the week 

Steelhead: Classic Wet Fly Swing in runs and tail outs.

Trout: Indicator Nymphing through current seams and riffles. Spontaneous dry fly action at times. A hopper dropper rig is a great option through the summer and into early fall..

Seven-day forecast 

Flows are currently around 1700 cfs (at Mehama) and is expected to be at that level by the weekend following a midweek bump to 3800 cfs. The Corp is starting the fall draw down of Detroit Reservoir. Great levels for boating and angling. Trout fishing has been very good this summer. October Caddis are sealed off and will be hatching soon.
