Chinook Fishing is Getting Better in the Umpqua River and Should Continue to Improve.

The reason for the anticipated further improvement is that warm river tempertures¬† in the Umpqua River have created a thermal barrier that tends to keep the river’s salmon(almost 100% chinooks) from moving above Reedsport. The number of salmon holding below Reedsport should increase as salmon continue to enter the lower Umpqua River and water temperatures above Reedsport remain high.
