The Siletz is one of the coast’s most dependable steelhead rivers. The river’s pristine upper reaches make for excellent spawning and rearing habitat, enabling winter fish (available December through March) to reach 20 pounds and more. The Siletz also supports one of the coast’s few summer steelhead runs, and healthy spring and fall chinook fisheries. Steelheaders tend to focus on the upper river around and below Moonshine Park, accessible by drift boat. Salmon anglers will fish the mellow tidal waters closer to Kernville to intercept chinooks while they’re fresh, running upstream in flat bottom jet boats and drifting down or trolling. Fishing and crabbing opportunities are also available in scenic Siletz Bay, readily accessible from Highway 101.
