Ocean salmon fishing is open from Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt.; fishing is picking up on the Columbia and Willamette rivers; anglers are reporting early catches on the Rogue, Umpqua and other coastal rivers, and the season opens on the Hood and Umatilla rivers in mid-April. The best news of all: it’s only going to get better from here. Check out the zone reports for more information.
The 2015 schedule is now posted on line. This can be a great way to introduce friends or family members to fishing. ODFW will provide the instruction, loaner gear, and a great opportunity to catch fish.
Anglers in Lane County now have a new guide to more than five dozen fishing spots, from the Oregon Coast to the Cascade Mountains. Locations range from family-friendly, stocked ponds, to saltwater jetty fishing, to steelhead fishing on some of Oregon’s iconic rivers, there is something for every angler.
The season opens April 1 in western Oregon, W Blue Mts, and White River and Hood units. Due to warm conditions this winter and spring, green up is well under way and bears are becoming active in parts of the state. Hunting bears in the early part of the spring season may be a good tactic this year. See the zone reports for more information.
Spring bear hunting requires a controlled tag in most of the state, except for SW Oregon tags (which are sold out).
