Chetco River Fish Report for 10-6-2021
The estuary has been bustling with boat and bank anglers lately
Chetco River - Brookings, OR (Curry County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
The estuary has been bustling with boat and bank anglers lately. Catch has been good. Though river levels are still fairly low, recent rainfall colored the water up a bit and may have encouraged some early fish to move. Temporary rule changes for wild adult Chinook are now in place Aug. 31-Dec. 31. One wild adult Chinook per day and two total for this time period. This temporary rule change affects only adult wild Chinook. All other zone regulations still apply including the hatchery Chinook retention and the bobber rule. The ocean-terminal ‘bubble’ fishery will not be open this year.
ODFW tracks hatchery survival and other important information through Coded Wire Tag returns. Anglers with hatchery catch are encouraged to return adipose fin-clipped Chinook snouts to ODFW. A snout box with instructions is located inside the fish cleaning station in the port near the boat ramp. Thank you for your participation.
