Default 2 Rods License?

2 Rods License?

I've been out of the fishing sport for 20 years.

What's the deal with this?

Is there any limitations ( areas or fish type ) ?

ODFW extends two-rod fishing to Willamette and tributaries


March 29, 2016

two rods
Anglers who have a two-rod validation will be able to use two rods on the Willamette River and its tributaries this spring under a temporary rule adopted by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
CLACKAMAS, Ore. — Oregon’s popular two-rod fishing validation will be extended to include the Willamette River and its tributaries this spring under temporary rules adopted by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Effective April 1-July 31, 2016, anglers who have a two-rod validation will be able to use two rods while fishing in waters open to angling for salmon, steelhead, trout, or warmwater game fish in the Willamette River and its tributaries. However, angling for sturgeon remains restricted to a single rod per angler. All other Willamette Zone rules and regulations remain in effect.

Two-rod validations have been available to Oregon anglers for several years. For $21.50, licensed anglers can purchase a validation that allows them to use a second rod in certain locations of the state, primarily ponds and lakes. If you have already purchased a two-rod validation in 2016, it is valid for any waters open to the use of two rods, which now includes the Willamette River and its tributaries. Kids under the age of 12 do not need a validation to use a second rod.

“Anglers have told us they would like the option of being able to use two rods in more areas, and we believe that the Willamette provides a good opportunity”, said Mike Gauvin, manager of ODFW’s recreational fishing program. “In addition to the Willamette, we are considering extending two-rod fishing in 2016 to other flowing waters of the state, including some coastal rivers and bays.” After this trial season, fishery managers will evaluate the effects of the change and consider additional opportunities.

Because the Willamette spring Chinook fishery is managed under a strict quota and Endangered Species Act limits, ODFW will closely monitor the effect of the Willamette rule change and may make adjustments if necessary, though this is not anticipated.

Do NOT take your foot off the throttle. Continue to fight until this issue is dead. If you let pressure slip, even for a minute, they will try and weasel thru.

Some thoughts about the second rod endorsement!

I have one for both Oregon and Washington (It's just like free money to the states).

I use one rod for catchin' and one for experimenting.

Jigging for Kokes ain't easy with two rods (but fun to watch someone do it).

It keeps you busy especially if a downrigger is involved.

The second rod is best left out of the water during a fast Coho bite.

Lastly.... No matter which rod you're holding the other one will go off!

I only paid $14.80 for a 2-rod endorsement in Washington. But I had to purchase a Non-resident license. All because I can't get the wife to move to Washington, and I refuse to purchase a Oregon license. And I am a Pioneer.
