Swiftwater Day-Use Area


Located at the western boundary of the 33.8 mile North Umpqua Wild & Scenic River, Swiftwater Day-Use Area is a popular site to fish for steelhead, and salmon. Deep fishing holes line the rock embankments under the Swiftwater Bridge where anglers practice their skills and enjoy the day. A fishing platform extends over the river to provide fishing access for those with physical disabilities. Angling is allowed at Swiftwater, however, a few hundred yards upriver (just above Rock Creek confluence), fishing is restricted to fly-fishing only for the next 31 miles.


23 miles east of Roseburg on Highway 138. Located at Swiftwater Bridge. Elevation: 800 feet.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
