Elk River Fishing Report

Elk River - Port Orford, OR (Curry County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Anglers are picking up a few Chinook in the lower river, but rain this week may get them to start moving upriver. River conditions are still low and clear, so fishing will continue to be tough.

Anglers fishing for Chinook this year are reminded that only hatchery salmon can be kept.  Anglers are allowed an additional hatchery Chinook as part of their daily limit this year.
