North Umpqua Wild and Scenic River (second version)

Description:

North Umpqua Wild and Scenic River The North Umpqua, a tributary of the Umpqua River that drains from the Cascade Range south of Eugene, Oregon -- is one of Oregon's most beautiful rivers! The clear water, large Douglas-fir stands and geologic formations add to the spectacular scenery. The river is known for a variety of resident and anadromous fish species, including summer and winter steelhead, fall and spring chinook salmon, coho salmon, and sea-run cutthroat trout. The combination of large summer run steelhead, fly-fishing only restrictions and majestic scenery has drawn anglers from all over the world. The river serves as habitat for a variety of resident fish species, including summer and winter steelhead, fall and spring chinook, coho sea-run and cutthroat trout. The North Umpqua summer steelhead fishery is considered to be one of the most outstanding on the West Coast. In addition to the natural scenic quality of the North Umpqua River corridor are the locations of numerous prominent geologic features of columnar basalt, large basalt rock boulders and spires which are currently managed as the Rocks Geologic Area. Few river systems in the region expose as much of the volcanic and geologic history of the formation of the Cascades in one straight, east-west direction. The North Umpqua also provides river running opportunities for paddlers of all skill levels, from placid waters to roaring rapids. The best months for enjoying whitewater are May, June, and early July. Almost 34 miles of the North Umpqua have been designated as a wild and scenic river and this section has been set aside for fly-only fishing. The 79-mile long North Umpqua Trail parallels the river and offers visitors challenging hiking and mountain biking experiences. Camping, picnicking, swimming, horseback riding, hiking, sightseeing, bicycling, photography, nature study and scenic driving also await you! Stop on by the BLM’s Roseburg District Office for more information about the North Umpqua. Phone: 541-440-4930 E-mail: BLM_OR_RB_Mail@blm.gov www.blm.gov/visit
