No fishing after 2 p.m. in most Oregon streams
Effective Saturday, July 18, and until further notice, all water bodies defined as streams on Page 7 of the 2015 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations are closed above tidewater to fishing for trout salmon, steelhead and sturgeon from 2 p.m. to one hour before sunrise.
- Some streams will remain open because they are less prone to high water temperatures. Read ODFW’s July 18 press release and regulation update page for details.
- Fishing in the Columbia River and Snake River is not affected by the action, and fishing hours in these areas will remain under normal regulations.
- Due to exceedingly warm temperatures and fish die-offs, the Willamette River below Willamette Falls is closed all day to fishing for trout, steelhead, salmon and sturgeon.
- Fishing for warmwater species such as crappie, bluegill, bass, catfish and walleye is unaffected by the action and may continue in all waterbodies.
These one-day family-friendly workshops will cover everything you need to know to get your catch from the ocean to the dinner plate. Registration fee includes the use of all equipment, instruction/materials and lunch. For additional information and to register.
