Alsea River


The Siletz River originates in Polk County, Oregon near the abandonded logging community of Valsetz, and winds some 67 miles through the Central Oregon Coast before reaching its terminus at the Pacific Ocean in Lincoln City. The Siletz River is the primary focus for Greg Hedrick's Guide Service from October through April. From spectacular year round salmon and steelhead fishing, to the amazing views the river has to offer, the Siletz will never dissapoint!

From early October to late November, Chinook salmon are the main focus on the Siletz. Shorty after the fall salmon season comes to an end, winter steelhead will enter the river. Steelhead can be caught on the Siletz in early December all the way through late April. February and March are typically the best months of fishing on the Siletz, but broodstock programs have helped spread out the fish's return. Shortly behind the Winter Steelhead, the run of Summer Steelhead begin to enter the river. Summers will enter the river through the months of June and July but low water and warm temperatures can really slow the bite and put an end to the drift boat fishery. Fishing in the upper gorge can remain productive well into the fall months.
