hatchery strays. The fishery requires
release of wild fish, but harvest of
adipose-clipped hatchery fish is
allowed. This year is expected to offer
fair to good angling opportunity.

Oregon Fishing Guide Offering Quality
Fishing Trips At Popular Northwest
Fishing Locations like the Clackamas
River, Columbia River, Nehalem Bay,
Tillamook Bay and the Willamette River.
Popular angling locations include
the John Day Arm, and the forebay and tailraces at
John Day and McNary Dams, at the Umatilla River
mouth, and at the Irrigon Fish Hatchery. While most
fishing is from boats, bank anglers are successful
at both dams and locations near the Oregon and
Washington border. Bank anglers generally float bait
with bobbers and a few plunk Spin-n-Glo, plugs, or
spinners. Boat anglers pull plugs or float bait with
bobbers. In most locations, the best fishing
typically occurs from mid-October to late November,
but can also be quite good at times in December and
January. At Irrigon Hatchery, early season steelhead
fishing typically runs from mid August to mid
October. Steelhead fishing near the hatchery is poor
when spawning salmon are present from mid October
thru November, then restarts in December and
continues thru March. For further information
contact Pendleton District Office at (541) 276-2344
and ask for Tim Bailey, or the John Day District
Office at (541) 575-1167 and ask for Tim Unterwegner
or Jeff Neal.
