Question about Willamette River/Salem, OR Area

I recently moved to the Salem, Oregon area from Bend, Oregon. A friend and I still travel to the Deschutes regularly to do the drift at Maupin, and we are planning to get to know the Siletz in the near future. In the meantime, I have no awareness of what (if anything) is available for spey casting closer to Salem. There is the Willamette River of course, and I know it is fished for steelhead farther north near Portland, but I really donít know what is going on with it down here. I plan to go into a local shop and ask a few questions, but the forum seemed like just as good a place to start. TIA.

basic info

The North Santiam Spey Casters ( have a monthly outdoor casting meeting in Salem when the weather is cooperative, more often informally. This would be a good way to meet folks and get local info. Next one is tomorrow.
