Search Visit Oregon

The Smith River is 75 miles long. Unlike the Umpqua, which originates in the Cascade Mountains, the Smith River originates in the Oregon Coast Range and has the same character as other coastal streams such as the Siuslaw and Alsea Rivers to the north. The lower part of the river is influenced by the tides. Most angler fish for chinook salmon in the fall, steelhead in the winter, stripers in the spring through summer, shad in May and June, and searun cutthroat starting in August.
