Anglers are still catching a few steelhead, but this run is winding down. Through April  30,one wild steelhead at least 24-inches may be harvested per day and three per year as part of a daily and annual salmon/steelhead bag limit. Beginning May 1, only hatchery steelhead may be retained.

From a boat or on shore, spring Chinook fishing is reaching its peak right now. Spinners, plugs, anchovies, and sardines have all been used successfully.  Hatchery Chinook may be retained year-round. Wild Chinook opens for retention June 1. This spring, ODFW is conducting a genetic study on wild chinook by collecting fin tissue samples. Anglers interested in learning more and participating in this project can contact ODFW staff at 541-247-7605.
