The "Hundred Valleys of the Umpqua" form the timber-producing heart of southern Oregon centered on Roseburg. The river flows entirely within Douglas County, which encompasses most of the watershed of the river from the Cascades to the coast.

     The Umpqua River is formed by the confluence of the North Umpqua and South Umpqua rivers, both of which rise in the Cascades, approximately 6 mi (10 km) northwest of Roseburg. In modern terminology, the "Umpqua Valley" is sometimes taken to refer to the populated lower reaches of the South Umpqua south of Roseburg, along the route of Interstate 5.

The North Umpqua

     The North Umpqua rises from snowmelt and is considered one of the premier summer steelhead streams in the West. The combined river flows generally northwest through the Coast Ranges in a serpentine course past Umpqua and Elkton. At Elkton it turns to flow west past Scottsburg. It enters Winchester Bay on the Pacific at Reedsport. It receives the Smith River from the north near its estuary on Winchester Bay. The Umpqua River Lighthouse protects the mouth of the river.

     The Umpqua River is one of Oregon's most beautiful rivers. This popular Southern Oregon river is famous for outstanding salmon and steelhead fishing and exhilarating whitewater challenges. The North Umpqua River offers an ideal setting for many recreational pursuits. The North Umpqua provides the right challenge for all types of rafters and kayakers, from placid Class I waters to roaring Class IV rapids. The best months to raft are May, June, and early July.

Fishing The Umpqua River

The Umpqua river and Smith River are home to Silver Salmon and the Chinook Salmon. Coho Salmon are abundant throughout most of the Pacific Northwest bays and rivers. These hard fighting great tasting fish enter the rivers with the fall Chinook and are most common during the late part of the fall Chinook Salmon run.
     Later in the summer as the water flows decrease, boaters test their rock-maneuvering skills as the rapids become more technical. Almost 34 miles of the North Umpqua have been designated as a Wild and Scenic River and this section has been set aside exclusively for fly-fishing. The 79 mile long North Umpqua Trail parallels the river and offers visitors challenging hiking and mountain biking experiences. Visit the Bureau Of Land Management website for lots more information.
