Short answer is you should consult the regs. If you are having difficulty understanding specifics in the reg book, I suggest posting that section and asking for clarification (folks on here tend to be very helpful), or contact your local ODFW office. The gals at the Clackamas office are always very friendly when I stop by with questions.igquick;n602859 said:Also was wondering when I am technically not supposed to catch and release them in that area
I always wanted to catch channel cats there, do you remember any more details about that? Time of the year maybe, bait used?DrTheopolis;n603004 said:I've never done it, but used to walk the beach all the time. Pretty sure it's open for C&R year-round (and never open for retention). I've seen guys fishing all along the Willamette side, usually closer to the wingdam at the mouth. Saw a guy pull in a huge channel cat while sturgeon fishing.
