    OREGON SUMMER STEELHEAD (McKenzie River, John Day River and Rogue River) We use a wide variety of tackle, including flies, plugs and spinners, to catch the Oregon Summer Steelhead. They enter the Willamette River system, including the McKenzie River and Santiam River, in April. They enter the Rogue River in late August, and we can catch them. Steelhead make both summer and winter runs to the River, and can be found in the smaller waterways and tributaries year-round. Look for Chinook Salmon around the lower part of the river in spring. Coho varieties can be found throughout the year in the many tributaries around Willamette Falls/5(K).

    The Willamette Spring Chinook Salmon run is composed of about 85% hatchery fish and 15% wild stocks. At this point, all wild fish must be released, but their relatively low percentage of the catch certainly doesn’t dilute any enthusiasm. , fish return annually to the Willamette and as a result, allows anglers to generally keep 2 hatchery fin clipped fish per day.   During the 's and 's, some years would have more t winter steelhead come over Willamette Falls - with more t winter steelhead in The best year since then was in with more t winter steelhead returning.
