Coastal Chinook And Wild Coho Fishing
September 15, 2013
Coastal salmon fishing is starting to heat up in several areas. We’ve got reports of anglers hooking plenty of coho on the north coast, and others limiting out on chinook after 2 or 3 hours of fishing places like the Umpqua. Check out this week’s Recreation Report to see where fishing is hot, and see river-by-river season descriptions, on the Salmon and Steelhead page on ODFW web site.
Columbia River fall chinook fishing still going strong
Numbers have peaked at Bonneville Dam but there are still plenty of fish in the river and they’re moving upstream.
Rifle deer season opens Saturday
Rains have opened some private lands to hunting and lessened fire danger in parts of the state. Check for restrictions where you are headed and see ODF’s webpage for the latest on private land restrictions (click Landowner/Corporate Closure Chart for private land closures).
