Fall chinook season opens on Deschutes River Aug. 1

 
July 31, 2009

 

THE DALLES, Ore. – The lower Deschutes River will reopen for chinook salmon fishing on Aug. 1 under a temporary rule adopted by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The river will be open for chinook from the mouth at the I-84 bridge upstream to Sherars Falls. The daily catch limit will be two adult and five jack salmon per day. (Jack salmon are chinook 15-24 inches long.) Adipose fin-clipped (hatchery) steelhead are included in the daily salmon catch limit, although one additional hatchery steelhead may be retained per day for a total of three fish. 

The chinook salmon season will close Oct. 31.

Anglers are reminded that all wild (non adipose fin-clipped) steelhead must be released unharmed and that the use of bait is restricted to the section of the river from Sherars Falls downstream to the upper railroad trestle.
