Creel Sampling Summaries - 2015

2015 Buoy 10 creel sampling summaries will be sent daily August 1 through September 30.

The Buoy 10 fishery will begin on August 1 with a two fish/one Chinook daily bag limit through September 7 (Labor Day). During September 8–30 Chinook retention is scheduled to be closed. A mark-selective fishery (MSF) may be considered in-season during all or part of the non-retention period. Beginning October 1, Chinook retention will reopen with a two fish/two Chinook daily bag limit.

Preseason catch expectations (including release mortalities): 34,800 Chinook and 45,800 coho

Anglers should note Oregon's sport fishing closure at the mouth of Young's Bay. For details, see: http://www.dfw.state.or.us/fish/CRP/docs/lower-columbia/Map_YBC_Boundaries.pdf
