Due to ongoing drought and low water, these fisheries will remain closed until at least Oct. 31.

Due to high levels of domoic acid, razor clamming is closed along the entire Oregon coast.

Fishing

Columbia Zone

The Columbia River is renowned for its salmon and steelhead runs. In a year of good returns, over 1 million Chinook, coho and sockeye salmon, and summer steelhead travel up the river to spawn in its tributaries. Less known are the river’s excellent smallmouth bass and walleye fisheries. While most anglers fish this large river from a boat, there is plenty of good bank access at various parks, boat launches and beaches.
