OutdoorsOregon Department of Fish and Wildlife

June 29

Based on a strong return of Columbia River summer chinook, fishery managers from Oregon and Washington moved to implement a nonselective fishery on the river's mainstem, from the Tongue Point upstream to the state border above McNary Dam.

Effective July 1, the decision by the Columbia River Compact allows anglers to keep both adipose and non-adipose fin-clipped chinook salmon and fin-clipped steelhead. Catch limits and other restrictions listed in the 2005 Oregon Sport Fishing Guide remain in effect.

The Compact also approved an extension of the recreational sport sturgeon fishery. Anglers through July 10 are allowed to retain sturgeon while fishing the Columbia, from Wauna Powerlines downstream to Buoy 10, including Young's Bay. Retention is prohibited July 11-14, and allowed again July 15-17. A 45-inch size minimum is in effect.

Sturgeon anglers in the John Day Reservoir and tributaries through the stretch are prohibited from retaining sturgeon starting July 11. The sturgeon fishery is managed for an annual harvest quota of 165 fish, which is expected to be met July 10. Anglers may continue to fish for sturgeon on a catch-and-release basis.

Further details are available on the Ocean Salmon Columbia River Program Web site: (www.dfw.state.or.us), under "Sport Fishing Updates."

Outdoor recreation enthusiasts in southwest Oregon are advised that the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service is reporting conditions on the open ocean have produced poor feeding opportunities for some seabirds, which may cause birds to die at sea and wash up on the beaches.

If beach-goers find sick or dead seabirds on the beach they should not pick up the birds. Many of them may not survive, and rehabilitating the birds may not be possible. Also, if large numbers of birds are found in any particular area, beach-goers should report it to their local ODFW office.

HUNTING REPORT OCHOCO DISTRICTHunters and wildlife viewers are reminded that motorized vehicle access regulations are in effect on some Ochoco National Forest and BLM lands. These measures are intended, in part, to protect wildlife and other valuable resources. BLM and Ochoco National Forest offices in Prineville should be contacted for more information.

COYOTE: On public lands coyotes will be keying into areas being used by deer for fawning. On private lands concentrations of ground squirrels and marmots will likely be the attractant. Hunters are reminded to have permission from landowners before hunting private lands.
