Also come and meet members of the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commissioner at a reception on Thursday, Feb. 11 from 4:45 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. in the Green Theater at the Portland Expo Center or join us for crabbing/clamming and controlled hunt seminars.

Winter steelhead fishing is in full swing in many parts of Oregon, with good conditions and catch rates reported in many locations throughout Oregon. Alert anglers will keep any eye on their favorite streams to look for the perfect combination of color, temperature, and flow. They also will keep an eye on the weekly Recreation Report to see which rivers are beginning to get fish and where they’re distributed in the river.
NW Permit Goose Hunting is open Feb. 6-March 10 and some other late goose seasons are open in February and March. Remember regulations for NW Goose hunting are easier now; hunters do not need to visit check stations.
Ever tasted walleye? It is easily one of the tastiest fishes on any seafood menu. For the past couple of weeks anglers have been reeling in some nice walleye on the Columbia River in The Dalles and John Day pools. This is one of the lesser known fantastic fishing opportunities Oregon has to offer this time of year.
Anglers rejoice: Many waterbodies are now open to year-round fishing for trout. See the new 2016 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations for details.
We’ve got a variety of classes coming up, see our calendar of events for the latest http://www.odfwcalendar.com/
