  • Many more rivers and streams open to trout fishing on Saturday.

  • It’s a holiday – three days to visit a favorite spot, and maybe discover a new one.

  • The 2015 Annual Fishing Guide has been posted – ODFW’s most comprehensive look at where to fish in Oregon is sure to give you ideas. Compiled by ODFW biologists, it describes access, regulation updates, best times of year to fish, and tips and techniques for rivers, streams, lakes and reservoirs throughout the state.
