The North Santiam River is a 92-mile (148 km) tributary of the Santiam River in western Oregon in the Cascade Range on the eastern side of the Willamette Valley east of Salem.
Blocked by Big Cliff Dam near Mill City, the lower North Santiam River supports spring chinook salmon and summer steelhead. In the reaches upstream of the dam, the river is managed mainly as a stocked-trout fishery. Near the stream's source at Santiam Lake in the Mount Jefferson Wilderness, native cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, and brook trout are also found.
