Winter weather could put fishing plans on ice, or underwater

Severe winter weather could impact fishing opportunities statewide. Snowy, icy roads are limiting access to several popular ice fishing spots in eastern Oregon. Snow melt and heavy rains could cause flooding in many western Oregon rivers and streams, making them unfishable until at least the weekend. For those hardy anglers willing to brave the wintry conditions, be safe and prepared for changing conditions.
