Elk River Fish Report for 9-23-2022
Elk River hatchery chinook bag limit increased
Elk River - Port Orford, OR (Curry County)
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
GOLD BEACH, Ore – Elk River anglers can keep one more hatchery chinook salmon per day Sept. 26-Dec. 1, raising the daily bag limit to three hatchery fish. The new limit applies from the mouth to Bald Mountain Creek.
The increased bag limit is meant to reduce the number of hatchery chinook that reach spawning grounds. Hatchery fish were identified in the 2014 Coastal Multi-Species Conservation and Management Plan as a limiting factor for wild Elk River fall chinook.
While the bag limit increases Sept. 26, most chinook don't start entering the Elk River until the end of October. Anglers are reminded that all wild chinook salmon must be released.
