What up, OFFers?

Little help would be appreciated.

I was checking out the 2016 regs for the North Santiam and I'm wondering if it's open for trout all year now?

Page 42 reads:

• Open for wild steelhead Jul 1 - Aug 31.

I'm glad I'm not the only one in the fog about this issue. And, since we're neighbors, I look forward to running into you on the riverbank some time in the future.

Howdy, neighbor!

Based on that, it looks like the main north fork seems to revert to whatever the zone rule is, otherwise it would have a blanket "open all year" like the upper reach says. So whatever the zone reg on streams is, that's probably your open dates.

Gotcha. Thanks. May it is.
