We are at Elkton, Oregon and this is the Umpqua River…
Another nice view — outside our picture window.
The Steelhead (ocean-going Rainbow Trout) are coming up-river, from the ocean, to spawn. When they are moving up-river, they prefer to hold in swifter current, rather than slack water, and this stretch of current is the only fast-moving water in miles. We saw a camp host come back with two nice Steelhead this morning. I’m going to have to get a fishing license.
The shoreline of the river is the private property of the RV Park, good thing we live here. The surrounding river is a smallmouth bass fishing destination and is well known. The RV park is littered with fishing boats of all types. It seems that this is a prime staging area for fishing-fun.
After this stop, we will be following the Umpqua River west, until getting to the Pacific Ocean, and then spend the rest of June camping along the coastline.
Here is a link to the google map for the area.
