SIUSLAW NEWS ❚ SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 2015 Visitors reminded to be ‘fire safe’ in forests BUD’S UPHOLSTERY Boat Tops & Cars CORVALLIS — With per- sistently warm and dry weather on the Oregon Coast this spring, Siuslaw National Forest officials have raised the Forest’s fire danger level to “moderate” and are reminding visitors to be mindful of fire safety this summer. “Although we’re not as prone to wildfires as National Forests in arid regions, the Siuslaw National Forest does have a history of wildfires,” said Dan Eddy, fire manage- • Complete Auto & Boat Interiors • Canvas Work 10 am-6 pm Mon-Sat.

No fire restrictions for the public are in place, but visitors are asked to exercise caution when visiting natural areas: 1. Keep campfires small and in an area cleared down to min- eral soil 2. Only burn materials that fit within the campfire ring 3. Be mindful of overhang- ing vegetation or limbs 4. Extinguish all campfires before leaving — even if gone for a short period of time 5. Smoke inside vehicles or in areas cleared at least four S CORES & S TANDINGS W OMEN ’ S Do your part and volunteer today to help support these local non-proft organizations in our community!

Anglers will start finding more fish up in the shallows this time of year. SIUSLAW RIVER: cut- throat trout The cutthroat trout sea- son is now open for the season. The main stem of the Siuslaw and Lake Creek can be good fishing as well as the larger tribu- taries entering these sys- tems. Bait is not allowed above the head of tide but small spinners, spoons and fly fishing can be very pro- ductive. ALSEA RIVER: Cutthroat trout The cutthroat trout sea- son is now open for the season and anglers should have fair to good results in most of the larger tributar- ies and mainstem. Small spinners are typically pro- ductive as wells as small spoons or fly fishing with nymphs or streamers. SALMON RIVER: Cutthroat trout Cutthroat trout are now open to harvest. Typically good fishing can be had during the early part of the season. Using small lures like spinners, spoons or various flies can be pro- ductive. SILETZ RIVER: Steelhead Summer steelhead fish- ing is slowly starting to pick up. New fish will con- tinually be moving into the river over the next few months with the peak num- bers typically in July. River flows are much lower than normal for this time of year so think small and subtle presentations. Typical steelhead tactics apply such as bobber and jig / bait, or casting spoons or spinners. Cutthroat trout are now also open to har- vest and can be found throughout the main stem river and many large tribu- taries. WILSON RIVER: steel- head, Chinook, cutthroat Spring Chinook fishing is slow in the low clear water. A few more fish are showing in the river. Summer steelhead angling is slow also. Angling for cutthroat trout should be fair. Use lighter gear for best results. YAQUINA RIVER: cut- throat trout The cutthroat trout sea- son has opened and anglers can expect to have fair to good fishing. The main- stem Yaquina and Big Elk Creek are good places to try casting small spinners or spoons as well.
