Deadline Falls is a waterfall located on the North Umpqua River in the Umpqua National Forest of Oregon, United States. The falls are situated approximately 22 miles (35 km) east of Roseburg, Oregon, along Highway 138 (North Umpqua Highway). Name The name "Deadline Falls" refers to the boundary established for fishing in the area. Fishing is prohibited within 200 feet (61 meters) downstream of the falls, as the waters are critical for the spawning and rearing of native fish species such as steelhead and rainbow trout. Geography and Hydrology Deadline Falls is characterized by a 15-foot (4.6-meter) drop, creating a mesmerizing display of frothing water against a backdrop of lush forests and rugged volcanic rock formations. The North Umpqua River, which feeds the falls, originates from the snowmelt of the high peaks in the Cascade Range and flows through a mix of dense forests and volcanic landscapes. Access and Viewing Access to Deadline Falls is provided by Highway 138, which offers several pullouts and scenic views of the North Umpqua River and its surrounding landscape. There is a short but kind of steep trail that goes from the side of the Highway down to the rocks near the falls for those that would like to get a closer look at the falls.
