Plenty of Chinook and Coho This Year
March 9, 2012
Federal fishery managers forecast robust populations of Chinook and Coho salmon off the Pacific coast and in California and Oregon rivers. They say itís shaping up to be the best salmon fishing season in years. The Pacific Fishery Management Council approved several options for managing west coast salmon fisheries this year. All of them give sport and commercial anglers plenty of time to fish later this spring and summer.

Recreational salmon fishing could begin as early as mid-March in southern Oregon and run through the fall. Commercial fishing could start as early as April 1 and run through September. Fishery managers project 1.6 million adult Chinook in the Klamath River this fall, four times more than last year and 15 times than in 2006.
