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.
Silver Creek Reservoir also known as Silverton Reservoir is a sixty-five-acre impoundment on Silver Creek located in the Cascade foothills 2.5 miles southeast of the city of Silverton, Oregon on Oregon Route 214.
The lake is popular in the spring and summer as a recreation area. Stocked with roughly 20,000 hatchery trout each spring and early summer, the lake also provides opportunities to catch bullhead catfish. Swimming is also quite popular on warm summer days as well as recreational boating, though only electric motors are allowed.
