Contributor Jeff Rome reports

The 2022 New Year came in with a big rain and snow storm providing big river flows and bringing in the winter steelhead in all the steelhead catching rivers and streams. Now that the “monsoons” have receded, most if not all of these systems are in prime shape and have been providing winter steelheader’s some nice New Year action…. WINTER STEELHEAD SEASON IS OFFICIALLY ON!!! 👏🎣

If you haven’t got your 2022 angling license and tags, now is the time to get em because now is the time to get out there and try out your new fishing gear you got for Christmas…… it don’t get much better than this!

Some summer steelhead are still being caught in the mid to upper Rogue with a few winter fish in the mix. River conditions throughout the system should be good into next week (although the upper is significantly on the low side of good).

Virtually all coastal rivers and streams from the Elk, Sixes, Chetco on up to the Coos system- Millicoma and Coos and North into the Umpqua system should be good and fishable with decent numbers of winter steelhead to make it a rewarding trip.

Crabbing in the bays and ocean look to be an opportunity as well as bottom fishing for rock fish and lings are also on the menu for the weekend.

Surf perch are biting along the rocky jetty’s and sandy beaches too!

Expect a crowd and be patient with newbies…… “one can educate whilst not being a jerk” 😉
