Some of the highlights from this week’s Recreation Report include:
- When the weather and waves cooperate, ocean fishing for lingcod and rock fish has been good.
- Water conditions in the Rogue and Umpqua are good. So, too, should winter steelhead fishing.
- Steelhead fishing has been fair to good in the Sandy and Clackamas rivers, and water levels should be fishable into the weekend.
- Trout are getting more active thanks to warming water temperatures in many areas
Turn in your 2017 combined angling tag
Even if you didn’t harvest a salmon, steelhead, sturgeon or halibut in 2018. Our biologists use this data to better manage these fisheries. Anglers can use this data to see where fish have been caught over the years.
Tags can be turned in to any POS agent or at any ODFW office located throughout the state. The tags also can be mailed to any ODFW office.
