Spring Chinook

Spring Chinook
- Oregon Fish and Wildlife-

Adult spring chinook fishing workshop Feb. 14

Join the NW Steelheaders and ODFW to learn how to catch these hard-fighting, good-eating fish. The focus will be on bank and boat fishing techniques for the Sandy and Clackamas rivers. Registration is $52 per person and includes instruction, program materials, use of ODFW equipment and a one-year membership to the NW Steelheaders. Find more information, including how to register.

Only a few days left to report big game and turkey tags

Don’t forget to report your hunt results no later than Jan. 31, 2015 for most hunts. Report online or by phone (1-866-947-6339).

Hunters need to complete a report for each deer, elk, cougar, bear, turkey and pronghorn tag purchased (or picked up as part of a Sports Pac)—even if they didn’t hunt or weren’t successful. Deer and elk hunters who don’t report will have to pay a $25 fine to get a 2016 hunting license.

Winter steelhead season continues

For the best fishing, keep an eye on the weather and water levels (and the weekly Recreation Report) and be ready to hit the river when water levels start to fall. To help plan your trip, including access and fishing tips, check out the 2014 Annual Fishing Guide.

Spring bear hunting applications due Feb. 10
