Alongside the Rogue, the Umpqua is among Oregon’s most esteemed fishing rivers. The two branches of the river-the North and the South-join northwest of Roseburg to form the mainstem of the Umpqua, which continues west to Winchester Bay where it enters the Pacific. Year-round fishing is available for a variety of resident and anadramous species—winter steelhead give way to spring chinook and shad, which in turn are replaced in the system by summer steelhead and fall chinook. Smallmouth bass and white and green sturgeon fill in any lulls between steelhead and salmon runs. Highway 38 parallels the river through the pastoral Umpqua Valley from Elkton to the coast, and numerous boat ramps are available.
