Spring Fishing Guide gives anglers a peek at upcoming season
April 21, 2011


SALEM, Ore. – Local fish biologists are predicting some great fishing in 2011 and anglers can see just what they’re saying about hundreds of water bodies throughout the state in the 2011 Spring Fishing Guide.

Published by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife every April, the Spring Fishing Guide describes available access for boats and bank anglers, water levels, recent regulation changes, best time of year to fish, where to target your efforts, and tips on gear, lures and techniques for hundreds of rivers, streams, lakes and reservoirs.

The guide was released today just before the early-season trout opener on Saturday, April 23. ODFW already has been stocking dozens of lakes, ponds and reservoirs with legal-sized and larger trout and anglers should expect some very productive days on the water.

While many lakes, reservoirs and some streams throughout the state will be open to trout fishing on April 23, several other rivers and streams won’t open until May 28 in order to protect young salmon and steelhead smolts that are still migrating to the ocean. Anglers should check the 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations for details.
