Hello Salmonking,

Fished with Brad the other day and fished with his brother Guy a little while back when he was out visiting. Guy has made a remakable recovery from his tragic auto accident.

Some of the rivers and bays have had there dailey limits of coho increased and it was recently posted by Pete I believe. Do a search on ifish community forum and you will find it or I suppose you can go to the ODFW site and find the info. I just don't have the time right now.

Hatchery Coho Bag Limits Increase on Coastal Streams and Lower Columbia Tributaries


SALEM –Taking advantage of abundant hatchery coho returns, Oregon fishery managers increased daily catch limits for adipose fin-clipped coho to three fish in many coastal rivers and Columbia River tributaries below Bonneville Dam. The new bag limits go into effect Saturday, Sept. 13.

Anglers may retain an additional adipose fin-clipped coho in their normal two salmon and steelhead daily bag limit.

Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) estimates that nearly 1 million hatchery coho were present in the ocean this summer, with about half returning this fall to the Columbia River.

Biologists analyzed risks to wild stocks in each of the rivers affected by the bag limit increases and concluded that the additional harvest opportunity would not adversely affect the naturally spawning populations.
