Oregon’s year-round fishing spans the state from native redband trout in eastern deserts to rockfish and halibut in ocean waters – with lots of salmon, steelhead, trout and warmwater fishing in between. Whether your plans take you to a nearby neighborhood pond or to one of the state’s premiere fishing destinations, there will be a place for you to fish in Oregon every day of the year.
Check salmon/steelhead harvest statistics
ODFW collects salmon and steelhead harvest statistics from rivers and streams throughout the state. This data can help you pinpoint productive fisheries.
Fish Counts at Major Dams and Fish Traps
The number of fish passing over dams can be a good indicator of how many fish are in the river and how the run is progressing.
