Recreation Report

ODFW is putting the weekly Recreation Report on hiatus for a few weeks.

In the meantime, all fishing seasons remain open. (Except for salmon and steelhead fishing on the Columbia River.)

If you do go fishing, stay close to home, keep your social distance, and travel safely.

We’ll resume our weekly updates when conditions improve. Thank you for your patience, and stay safe!
