Revised Dec 11, 2014

 

New salmon, steelhead, sturgeon endorsement

Beginning Jan. 1, 2014 anglers fishing for salmon, steelhead or sturgeon in the Columbia River and its tributaries will be required to have a Columbia River Basin endorsement. See a map of the Basin and get more information.

Deschutes River

  • The 2014 fall Chinook season closed on Oct. 31.

Wickiup Reservoir

The regulations for Wickiup as they appear in the 2015 Sport Fishing Regulations booklet were formatted incorrectly and this is leading to some confusion. Here, in a clearer format, are the 2015 regulations for the reservoir:

  • Open April 25-Oct. 31.
  • 25 kokanee (no size limit) in addition to other trout species limit.
  • Closed from 1 hour after sunset until 1 hour before sunrise.
  • Deschutes River Arm, upstream of ODFW marker located new West South Twin boat ramp:
    • Restricted to artificial flies and lures only.
    • 2 trout per day from Aug. 1-Aug. 31, kokanee included in trout limit.
    • Closed Sept. 1-Oct. 31.
