Coho SalmonAngling hour restrictions starting Saturday, July 18

To avoid additional stress on fish due to low and warm water conditions, all waterbodies defined as streams in the 2015 Oregon Sportfishing Regulations are closed above tidewater (where applicable) to fishing for trout, salmon, steelhead and sturgeon from 2 p.m. to one hour before sunrise. This measure has been implemented until further notice.

Some streams will remain open for angling under normal hours because they are less prone to high water temperature risks.

Please see the press release and the regulation update page for further details and exceptions.

CrabbingTake a crack at crab

Escape the heat and head to the coast to crab. Ocean crabbing has been productive, and bay crabbing continues to improve. Check out the crab report to know where to go.

If you haven’t dug clams or crabbed before and want to learn, there are workshops in Newport, August 8 and 9 (Participants must register.) And a free crabbing/clamming seminar in Bandon, August 15.

Sign up for a workshop.
