"Spring" "Time" "March" Predictions

5:33 PM · Mar 8, 2024

Time marches forward into spring of 2024. It is time for the annual predictions for springtime viewing of our LiveCam. The next few weeks is usually when over 25% of the winter steelhead population will continue their forward migration to their spawning homewaters destination in the North Umpqua. Our first prediction is the count will reach over 6000 fish and could end up being the highest return in the past few years. Secondly, the first "spring chinook" will be seen in the viewing window in the next couple weeks. Be looking for this leader of many more of this species to follow when the water temperature nears the 50-degree mark. You could be eligible for a prize from the Derby when you send in a time-stamped photo from the live-streaming video. The third prediction is guaranteed to happen this weekend..the clock on the wall will return to "realtime" for about 6 months and we will thankfully receive fewer questions about if the fish see the time is off by an hour as some fish appear to look at it sometimes.
