The South Umpqua is the other tributary of the Main Umpqua River whose headwaters are situated just east of Rosburg while originating near Tiller, Oregon. The South Umpqua is one of my favorite places to fish for winter steelhead. The South Umpqua has a mix of hatchery and wild steelhead run and can also produce large fish over 20lbs. I like to fish from the town of Canyonville to Myrtle Point. The South Umpqua can easily be one of the most productive places to fish in Southwest Oregon.
Winter and summer steelhead and fall and spring chinook will be fished for out of my 2017 17’ Willie Drift Boat. Fishing in the Bay will be fished out of my 2018 24’ Willie Raptor.
