Agency sets groundfish rules, price

SALEM — The Fish and Wildlife Commission met on Monday to set harvest specifications and season structure for recreational groundfish. 

Oregon’s rules are based on the federal rules adopted by the Pacific Fishery Management Council and 2016 harvest limits are the same as last year. 

This year’s recreational ground fish regulations will be a seven fish daily bag limit for all Marine Fish (rockfish, greenling, and cabezon), no more than one of which may be a Cabezon or Canary Rockfish, and no more than three of which may be a Blue or Deacon Rockfish.


Plunkers rule the Chetco River

John Killen from Medford limited out on winter steelhead on the Chetco River last week while plunking a Spin-N-Glo from the bank.

Last week Mother Nature provided steelhead anglers the opportunity to deploy several fishing techniques.

From Saturday through Monday, the Chetco hovered between 2,800 and 3,000 cfs, which are perfect water flows for drift boaters to side-drift or pull plugs. It was also choice water for shore anglers to drift-fish Corkies, yarn balls or Puff Balls, all being used with or without roe.

Then on Tuesday, the river decided to respond to the vast amounts of rainfall that occurred during the week and sharply rose to 8,000 cfs, and it kept on rising to 14,000 cfs on Wednesday. At this point the river turned chocolate brown and it became blown out and unfishable -— but it didn’t remain that way for very long.

New fishing regs for 2016

SALEM — Anglers this year may have noticed that Oregon’s fishing regulations for 2016 are in a new magazine format publication, which is not only more colorful but simpler and easier to read.

Over the past year ODFW worked on streamlining and simplifying the angling regulations. ODFW has also expanded opportunities for trout and warmwater fishing and provided more consistent seasons and bag limits.


Disabled athletes to compete in OSAA events

High school swimmers and track and field athletes with disabilities soon will have more opportunity to compete at the Oregon School Activities Association state championships.

Beginning with the OSAA Swimming State Championships in February and OSAA Track and Field Championships in May, there will be two predetermined events. The 50 and 100 meter freestyle events are scheduled for swimming and 100 and 400 meter dashes at track and field.
