The Chinook salmon season on the
Imnaha River will close July 3.
According to Jeff Yanke, fish biologist in Enterprise, the fishery
will close because the annual harvest limit will be reached on the
closure date.
“Based on catch rates observed last week in the fishery, we
expect to reach our hanzest limit by Sunday”, he explained.
With a relatively modest return of Chinook salmon to the
Imnaha, Yanke expected a shorter duration fishery in 2016. “We
did not see a very large run this year, but there was some good
fishing opportunities provided”, he said.
Spring Chinook fishing opens July 2
on Wallowa River
A significant upturn in the forecasted run to the Lostine River
prompted ODFW to open the Wallowa River on July 2 for hatchery
spring Chinook fishing. Anglers will be able to fish salmon from the
deadline at the lower end of Minam State Park upstream to the
mouth of the Lostine River.
Anglers can keep two hatchery spring Chinook adults and five
adipose fin-clipped jacks per day, with two daily jack limits in pos­
session. Single point hooks larger than 1 inch gap and multiple point
hooks larger than 9/16 inch gap are prohibited. Chinook jacks are
salmon between 15 and 24 inches in length.
Anglers do not need to record jack catch on their cohibined an­
gling tags, but it is illegal to continue fishing for jack Chinook once
the adult bag limit is met. Wild fish must be released immediately
and unharmed. A valid Columbia Basin Endorsement is required for
this fishery.
The Wallowa River fishery, which targets salmon bound for the
Lostine River, was unexpected even for local fishery managers.
A closure date for the fishery has not been set; ODFW will con­
duct regular fishery monitoring to determine how catch and harvest
compares to annual sport fishery quotas.
