Fly fishing, razor clam workshops coming up

Learn to fly fish May 14 at the beautiful Fall River Hatchery in Bend. Find out how to spot, dig for and prepare razor clams at workshops on Saturday, May 7 or Sunday, May 8 at Fort Stevens State Park.

Apply for a controlled hunt by Sunday, May 15

Beat the long lines that happen right before the deadline and apply now—online, at a license sales agent or by mail or fax order. Don’t forget to put in for Oregon’s new Premium Hunts. Note the deadline falls on a Sunday this year and ODFW offices aren’t open on weekends.

Spring turkey hunting continues

Season continues thru May 31. We’re already seeing lots of success stories, see tips and outlook for this season at the Spring Turkey Hunting Forecast.

Reservoirs filling up nicely for spring fishing

Reservoirs around the state are filling up nicely, which after last year’s drought, bodes well for boat fishing prospects this year. Oregon offers many spectacular lakes and reservoirs where boat fishing is allowed and offer an array of interesting game fish to consider … from the warmwater variety such as bass, crappie and bass to big game species such as steelhead, brown trout, and salmon. Consider putting a reservoir, lake or two into your spring fishing plans.
