Chetco River Fish Report for 11-24-2021
Temporary rule changes for wild adult Chinook are now in place Aug. 31-Dec. 31
Chetco River - Brookings, OR (Curry County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
There are good numbers of Chinook spread throughout the lower river and more to still come as this is just the beginning of the run. 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 the time period. This temporary rule change affects only adult wild Chinook. All other zone regulations still apply including the hatchery Chinook retention.
Just a reminder, the trout season ended Nov. 1 and the bobber rule lifted Nov. 3.
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.
