Whether you plan to hit the field for deer or the water for salmon this weekend, here are some tips for tagging your harvest.
We’re looking at a coyear for coho
Coho salmon are “pouring” over Willamette Falls and are now well-distributed in the Clackamas (and the Sandy, too) and arriving at the Stayton fish counting station on the Santiam. On the coast, the wild coho fishery is red hot in Coos Bay right now.
