Illinois River Fish Report for 11-30-2022
Illinois River Report
Illinois River - Cave Junction, OR
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Trout fishing is open, mostly for catch-and-release fishing for wild trout as there are no hatchery releases on the Illinois system. Bait is not allowed on the Illinois River. This includes soft beads and plastic worms, which are considered bait. See the definition of bait on page 14 in the Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.
The Illinois River re-opens to trout and steelhead fishing between 8 Dollar Bridge and Pomeroy Damon Dec 1.
Much of the publicly accessible reaches of the Illinois River fall under the USFS Wild Rivers Ranger District. More information can be found on their website. For up-to-date flows check the USGS Kerby gauge.
