Emergency fishing restrictions now in effect for Umpqua River
ROSEBURG, Ore. – Effective immediately, an emergency regulation protects wild summer steelhead and early returning fall chinook on the mainstem Umpqua River.
Scottsburg Bridge (Hwy. 38) to River Forks Boat Ramp:
Today through Sept. 30, 2019, angling is prohibited within a 200 feet radius of all tributaries in the Umpqua River and in the tributaries themselves from the mouth to 200 feet upstream.
This emergency regulation protects wild summer steelhead and fall Chinook salmon that hold in and around tributaries looking for colder water. Currently, the Umpqua River has abnormally low flows and high water temperatures.
“The Umpqua River at Elkton was 79 degrees this morning, and we know that temperature will be higher in the early evening, so we need to protect our native fish,” said Greg Huchko, Umpqua District fisheries biologist. “Salmon and steelhead have a tough time when water temperatures are over 68, and we aren’t seeing a cooling trend any time in the near future.”
This emergency regulation was also in effect in late June 2015 and 2018 to protect salmon and steelhead.
