Flowing 110 miles from the foothills of the Coast Range southwest of Cottage Grove to Florence, the Siuslaw River attracts south Valley residents in quest of anadramous fish. chinook, shad, steelhead and sturgeon all make appearances here, with chinook and steelhead attracting the lion’s share of angling activity. Most anglers target chinook in the tidal zones; the estuary has many public boat ramps. Steelheaders focus on the mid sections of the river. Sea run cutthroat are also plentiful in the system in August and September. Clamming on the lower river east of Florence is first-rate; crabbing can also be excellent, especially in August and September. Paddlers love the Siuslaw Estuary (just up from Old Town Florence), where kayakers riding the tide can encounter an abundance of bird life.
