Recreational fisheries in Youngs Bay and tributaries re-open

October 30, 2012

CLACKAMAS, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife today announced that salmon and steelhead fishing will reopen in Youngs Bay, Youngs River and the Klaskanine River (including the North and South Forks) on Wednesday, Oct. 31 through the remainder of 2012.

Fishery managers decided to reopen these fisheries because area hatcheries have now met their brood stock objectives for chinook salmon. These fisheries closed Oct. 13 due to poor hatchery returns resulting from low water conditions.

Under permanent rules for these areas, anglers are now permitted to retain up to two adult fin-clipped salmon/steelhead in combination, plus up to five fin-clipped jack salmon per day.

For more information, please refer to ODFW’s 2012 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations or visit ODFW’s regulation update page on the Internet at www.dfw.state.or.us/resources/fishing/reg_changes/index.asp.
