Most of the North Umpqua River and its tributaries are closed to fishing through the end of November. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife says the closure is due to the low number of summer steelhead returning to the river.

"Initial counts of summer steelhead passing Winchester Dam are historically low at about 20 percent of average," the agency said in a press release.

The ban on fishing applies from the mouth of the river to the Soda Springs Dam east of Roseburg.
