Alsea River Closes for Wild Coho as of Tuesday Night – Other Rivers Still Open

The Alsea reached more than 92 percent of its quota through last Sunday and was closed after legal fishing hours on Tuesday. The Siuslaw River is also very close to reaching its wild coho quota with more than 86 percent through last Sunday. However, with approximately 240 wild cohos left of their quota, it will probably be a few more days before it closes. Here are the wild coho catch statistics through last Sunday (October 21st).
