ODFW pulls back new rules for Wickiup Reservoir
Wickiup Reservoir - La Pine, OR (Deschutes County)
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has rescinded two emergency rules that would have removed the kokanee “bonus bag” on Wickiup Reservoir, and closed the Deschutes River arm of the reservoir a month earlier in late summer.
The rules were intended to protect natural reproduction in the reservoir under new water management rules that could affect key spawning grounds.
“We’re going to take a step back to do some additional monitoring and to engage the angling community in a discussion of what the fish management options are for Wickiup under the new water regime,” said Brett Hodgson, ODFW fish manager.
Wickiup Reservoir will open to fishing on April 22 under the regulations printed in the 2017 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.
