Siletz River​​

The Siletz River originates in Polk County, Oregon near the abandonded logging community of Valsetz, then 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 begin to enter the river. Steelhead can be caught on the Siletz from December all the way through April. February and March are typically the best months of fishing on the Siletz, but a quality broodstock program has helped spread out the return providing an excellent fishery from late December well into April most years. The Siletz also has a run of both wild and hatchery summer steelhead that enter the river beginning around April.
