Angling gear restrictions are now lifted for the Chetco and Winchuck rivers due to significant rainfall eliminating snagging risk to fall chinook. ODFW had extended the restrictions to December 31 or until rainfall raised water levels.

“We are back on track with water flows in the Chetco and Winchuck and fall chinook are now moving upriver,” said Steve Mazur, district fish biologist.

Effective immediately, the restriction to fly fishing or bobber fishing in both rivers is lifted. The rivers are open for winter steelhead and fall chinook for the remainder of the year according to general, statewide and southwest zone regulations. Bag limit is one per day, five per year as part of the daily or annual salmon/steelhead bag limit.
