Spring is approaching and so are Spring Chinook

5:12 PM · Mar 7, 2023

The weather forecast for next week looks like springtime weather may be finally arriving in the Umpqua basin. Warmer water temperatures and higher flows will encourage more winter steelhead to move upstream. These river conditions will also start our FishWatch Contest for the "First" Spring Chinook to be observed in 2023. Go to the Umpqua Fishery Enhancement Derby Facebook page and share a photo of this early-arrival fish on our video with the date and time stamp on the window. You might win a prize!
