Summer salmon and steelhead class on Sandy River

Join ODFW and the Sandy Chapter of the Association of Northwest Steelheaders to learn how to fish for summer steelhead and salmon from the bank or from a boat.

Saturday, Aug. 8 at Glenn Otto Park near Troutdale. Registration required. Class includes instruction, use of rod, reel and tackle, and lunch. Workshop details and registration.

No fishing after 2 p.m. in most Oregon streams

Effective Saturday, July 18, and until further notice, all water bodies defined as streams on Page 7 of the 2015 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations are closed above tidewater to fishing for trout salmon, steelhead and sturgeon from 2 p.m. to one hour before sunrise.

  • Some streams will remain open because they are less prone to high water temperatures. Read ODFW’s July 18 press release and regulation update page for details.
  • Fishing in the Columbia River and Snake River is not affected by the action, and fishing hours in these areas will remain under normal regulations.
  • Due to exceedingly warm temperatures and fish die-offs, the Willamette River below Willamette Falls is closed all day to fishing for trout, steelhead, salmon and sturgeon.
  • Fishing for warmwater species such as crappie, bluegill, bass, catfish and walleye is unaffected by the action and may continue in all waterbodies.

Crabbing workshops Aug. 8 and 9 in Newport

These one-day family-friendly workshops will cover everything you need to know to get your catch from the ocean to the dinner plate. Registration fee includes the use of all equipment, instruction/materials and lunch. For additional information and to register.
