Sutherlin, Oregon is a hunting and fishing paradise. There are
seasons on Columbian white tailed deer, black tailed deer, Roosevelt Elk, black bear, bobcat, wild turkey, and many other
wild birds and animals. For fishermen, Sutherlin has two dams and
three creeks, all within a 5 minute drive from the city center. Sutherlin is
also close to excellent fly fishing on the Umpqua River.
Sutherlin's prime location in one of the many valleys between
the Cascade Mountain Range and the Coastal Mountain Range allows
local wineries to produce prize winning, premium vintages. Many wineries have tasting rooms or offer tours (see links).
Experience the natural wonders of the area by taking the Rogue-Umpqua
Scenic Byway. The route starts just a few miles south of Sutherlin
on Highway 138 and follows the scenic North Umpqua River east
from Roseburg, then heads south to follow the wild Rogue River.
This 172 mile byway winds by beautiful natural areas, lush green
forest, waterfalls and picturesque Diamond Lake. There are many
places available for camping, hunting, fishing and hiking along
this scenic byway.
Cooper Creek Reservoir is a 140 acre reservoir located
two miles east in a valley adjoining Sutherlin. Fishermen can try for large mouthed bass, bluegill, crappie and stocked trout. On site facilities include a boat ramp, swimming facilities, pavilion, and many picnic areas. With many county parks, state parks, and the Crater Lake National Park nearby, there are many opportunities for recreation in Sutherlin.
