Umpqua wild coho fishery closes Saturday, Oct. 1
September 29, 2011


ROSEBURG, Ore. – The Umpqua River wild coho fishery will be closed beginning Saturday, Oct. 1, ODFW fishery managers said. The fishery is closed to both adult and jack wild coho salmon.

Since the season opened Sept. 15, anglers have harvested 1,095 wild coho. With several more days of harvest data coming in, managers estimate the 1,300 wild fish quota will be met.   

“It’s been a popular fishery with 600 coho caught in the first four days,” said Laura Jackson, Umpqua District fish biologist.

Plenty of other fishing opportunities continue. The Umpqua River remains open for fall chinook, hatchery steelhead and hatchery coho. Check the Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations before you head out.

The mission of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is to protect and enhance Oregon's fish and wildlife and their habitats for use and enjoyment by present and future generations. The agency consists of the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission, a commission-appointed director and a statewide staff of approximately 950 permanent employees. Headquartered in Salem, ODFW has regional offices in Clackamas, Roseburg, Bend, and La Grande with ten district offices located throughout the state. For additional information, please visit
