Spring chinook fishing to close on Lookingglass Creek
July 13, 2011


LA GRANDE, Ore. — The Oregon Department of fish and Wildlife announced today that the fishing season for spring chinook salmon on Lookingglass Creek on will close, effective 12:01 a.m. July 16, 2011.

Lookingglass Creek, a tributary to the Grande Ronde River, opened to fishing for hatchery spring chinook on May 28 for the first time in a decade.  Fish managers estimate the harvest quota will be met this week, signaling the end of the fishery.

Tim Bailey, ODFW district fish biologist, estimates 150 adult and 270 jack spring chinook will have been harvested by the closure.

“Overall anglers have had a very successful season on Lookingglass Creek,” Bailey said.  As a bonus, the chinook run included a very large return of jacks, which could be harvested without counting toward the harvest quota.

For more information about the fishery, contact the ODFW Northeast Region Office in La Grande at (541) 963-2138.
