Wilson River winter steelhead!
- Oregon Fish and Wildlife-

Winter steelhead fishing continues

And this may be a great weekend to hit the water. After days (weeks?) of persistent high, muddy waters, many coastal rivers could be falling into shape just in time for the weekend. Check out reports for the NW, SW and Willamette zones for more details.

Early season trout stocking is underway

It’s not too early to be thinking about trout fishing – in fact, in several North Coast and Willamette Valley fisheries stocking is well underway. Check out the 2017 stocking schedules for west side lakes/ponds and start planning your next fishing trip. East side schedules will be posted in late February or March, once biologists have a better idea when water bodies might be accessible.
