2014 Salmon Season
The proposed 2014 ocean salmon seasons recently announced by the Pacific Fishery Management Council include good news for both sport anglers and commercial troll salmon fishers off the Oregon coast.
Recreational and commercial troll chinook salmon fishing this year likely will vary from good to great, said the council. That’s based on forecasted adult returns destined for key river basins of the Columbia River, the Central Valley in California and the Klamath River.
Although fishery managers are forecasting returns to the Central Valley and Klamath River fall chinook to be well below the 2013 totals, they should be abundant enough to result in good chinook catches along the entire Oregon coast.
