We head out on the Umpqua River for Steelhead with Guide Danny Bowers in Spring 2015. The weather was blue skies and 60 degrees. The Steelhead Fishing could not have been better this day as we landed 15+ steelhead over 10lbs with several pushing 15lb. These Umpqua River Steelhead fight hard and the scenery isn’t bad either.
The Umpqua River (/ˈʌmpkwə/ ump-kwə) on the Pacific coast of Oregon in the United States is approximately 111 miles (179 km) long. One of the principal rivers of the Oregon Coast and known for bass and shad, the river drains an expansive network of valleys in the mountains west of the Cascade Range and south of the Willamette Valley, from which it is separated by the Calapooya Mountains. From its source northeast of Roseburg, the Umpqua flows northwest through the Oregon Coast Range and empties into the Pacific at Winchester Bay. The river and its tributaries flow entirely within Douglas County, which encompasses most of the watershed of the river from the Cascades to the coast. The “Hundred Valleys of the Umpqua” form the heart of the timber industry of southern Oregon, generally centered on Roseburg.
