The Siuslaw River (pronounced sigh-YOU-slaw) is a river, approximately 110 mi (177 km) long, along the Pacific coast of Oregon in the United States. It drains an area of approximately 4560 sq mi (11900 km2) in the Central Oregon Coast Range southwest of the Willamette Valley and north of the watershed of the Umpqua River.
It rises in the Coastal Range of southwestern Lane County, approximately 5 mi (8 km) west of Cottage Grove. It flows generally WNW through the mountains, past Swisshome, entering the Pacific at Florence. The head of tide is 25 miles (40 km) upstream.
The river has historically been a spawning ground for both Chinook and Coho salmon. Although the present Chinook population is healthy, the Coho is a mere 5% of its historic numbers.
