Many fall salmon fisheries – Buoy 10, coastal rivers, Columbia River – open Aug. 1. While it may take the fish a while to catch up in some places, it’s not too soon to be checking the gear or booking a guide trip. More information on Buoy 10 and Columbia fisheries; more information of coastal rivers.
General fall bear season is here. Don’t forget to pick up your tag no later than Oct. 3.
We’ve been getting reports that sea-run cutthroats are starting to arrive in the tidewaters. Consider fishing the Chetco, Siuslaw, Trask, Nehalem, Wilson and Yaquina. Check the NW and SW zone reports for the latest updates.
If you didn’t get a chance to get a point saver before the controlled hunt deadline on May 15, you can still get one by mail or fax order thru Nov. 30. Late point saver application
See ODF’s webpage or check with the land manager where you are headed.
Hunts 248R, 249R, 258R1, 258R2 and 259R should be on the list of those that will receive one tag valid for the general elk bow season and the controlled bow season (so with other hunts in blue text at top of page 79). Also the entire Trask Unit is open to elk bow hunting, not just NF lands within the Trask Unit. These corrections have been made to this online PDF of pages 79-80.
