Ocean Nonselective Coho Season To Close.

Despite increasing the quota from the original 20,000 to 35,000 – the ocean nonselective coho salmon season is slated to close 11 days early with the last day for ocean coho fishing to be Friday, September 19th.

The bulk of the coho catch occurred along the northern Oregon coast from Newport north.

The ocean will remain open through October 31st for Chinook salmon 24-inches long, or longer – but no ocean coho will be legal to keep after Friday.

Both finclipped and wild coho are legal to keep in the tidewater portions of most of Oregon’s coastal rivers – subject to daily and seasonal individual limits on unclipped coho salmon.
