Fishing will continue to improve on the Willamette and on the Umpqua, Rogue and other coastal rivers. The season opens on the Hood and Umatilla rivers in mid-April. And anglers are still catching fish in the ocean.
Check out the zone reports for more information.
At one of three ODFW fishing workshops in May:
Registration required. All classes include instruction, use of rod, reel and tackle, and lunch.
The upcoming set of low tides from April 18-23 will be large in strength and duration. Harvesters should pay close attention to the surf forecasts and be on the beach one to two hours before low tide. See the Marine Zone update for more tips.
It’s a good time to see bald eagles, northern harriers, red-tailed hawks, osprey, sandhill cranes and many other species. See the Wildlife Viewing section of the Willamette Zone.
See the turkey hunting forecast for tips, tactics and reports from local districts.
Volunteers from Oregon Bow Hunters will be on hand to teach beginners and intermediate level new archers on April 18 and the 3rd Saturday of every month. No RSVP or pre-registration required. Free but parking permit required; for sale online or at license sales agent but not at wildlife area so get it before you visit.
