Fall Chinook Fishing is Improving

Yaquina River - Newport, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fall Chinook fishing is improving on the Yaquina River as well. A handful of fish are being caught every day in the lower estuary downstream of Toledo. Things should continue to improve as more fish move into the estuary throughout the month of September. 

Anglers are reminded that due to low forecasted returns for the 2020 season bag limits have been reduced on the Yaquina/Big Elk Rivers. The bag limit for the Yaquina/Big Elk is 1 wild Chinook per day and 5 per year for the 2020 season.
