ODFW extends chinook season at Trask ‘hatchery hole’
May 27, 2011


TILLAMOOK, Ore. – With good numbers of hatchery spring chinook beginning to arrive, and the bulk of the run yet to come, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) has decided to extend the fishing season at the “hatchery hole” on the Trask River. The hatchery hole is located on the Trask River at Trask Hatchery.

Biologists recommended the change because the run size appears to be large enough that fish surplus to hatchery brood stock needs will be available for harvest.

The Trask River hatchery hole was scheduled to close May 31. With the extension, the season will now be open through June 30. The new temporary regulations are as follows:

Trask River: closed from Gold Creek, at hatchery, 200 feet upstream and 900 feet downstream July 1-Nov. 30.

The director of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has the authority to adopt temporary rules in situations where biological data allows expanded recreational opportunities. Temporary rules adopted by the director must be approved by the Commission at the next regular meeting.
