Umpqua River Fishing Report​

My buddy and I went out to the main Umpqua and did some smallmouth fishing last Saturday. We had ourselves one heck of a evening. We both tried a couple of different lures, and ended up settling on shad pattern rubber baits. We came home with these 3, but both of us ended up landing about 20 or so a in the hour and a half we were there. Hoping to make it out again this weekend a couple of times.

Umpqua River Fishing​

Got on the water around 9:30 after my buddy had to drop the kid off at school. Took a while to get on them ,but once we got located it was a pretty steady bite. 1 double .Some nice hens mixed in with a few SMALL males. Kept 3 for pickling and shad roe cooked in home cured bacon greasease.Have fun! Chartreuse was the hot color.

Fished about 12-5, I stopped counting at 40! Biggest one was maybe 2lbs though.

Didn't take a lot of photos, spent a lot of time practicing paddling through current.

A buddy and I made a trip out this last Sunday for an afternoon on the river. We lost count after about 20, and ended up keeping 5 around the 1 1/2 lbs mark. Rubber baits seemed to be the trick. I tried a couple of different worms, but the ticket seemed to be a rubber smelt/fry with a dark top and silver belly. I could see some pretty decent sized fish down in the bottom, but I could never get one of them to strike.

Went out again yesterday evening. Only about a dozen or so this time using the same rig and ended up keeping 1. I remembered to take a picture this time.

We fished the Umpqua River yesterday we had two bites one at 19 the other at 24. luckily the one bite at 19 stuck and my daughter got her first Chinook salmon. The best part for me she got it with her great Grandpa 87 years old, my life long fishing buddy. Plug cut herring lime green fish flash 8 oz of weight right on the bottom. We saw one other fish netted, the fish checker said they only saw one other fish besides ours as of 1 pm.

Had a great float today with my buddy. Got my personal best, dark, but a big one. My fish came on bobber and jig, buddy got his on a side drift yarnie. Didn't see any other boats. He lost a nice one at the boat.

Have fun!

Wild fish in the main Umpqua don't get to go home so this one went back. Went over to the North to try for a keeper but caught two wild steelhead instead. Still no groceries.

This my earliest springer ever and my first Umpqua system springer so I was pretty stoked. She fell for a back trolled plug. Not huge, about 14lbs but really fresh and fiesty.

I was alone so crappy pic....again.

I've been thinking of going to Bandon to pump shrimp so I can run bait divers with shrimp and eggs.

Shiny! She would've tasted mighty fine; sans the catch n' release rule for nates.

Got OFF to a late start and didn't get to the river until about 10:45 Cloud cover saved us and the fish bit pretty much all day. Ended up with a nice box and lost quite a few [My buddy forgot the net] Quite a few large hens and about 20% small males. I think the run is about at its peak HAVE FUN!
