NW zone question?

V
VagrantAngler
So I have gone through all the regs and emergency regs I can find on the Salmon River. My question is: Can I legally retain non-Clipped Chinook? Not trying to start a morality battle just a simple yes or no will suffice. Thank you in advance.

Greetings Sir.

Kevin here...

Try to make contact here:

Lincoln County Sheriff
Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, Newport, Oregon: The Law Enforcement Agency of Choice

W Olive St
Newport, OR 97365
(541) 265-4277

Ask the Sheriff your question.

Please post what he says, if you wouldn't mind.

I might be going up there this weekend and that intel might help me out of a jam also.

Thanks - Appreciate it.

Does the Sheriff really do game questions? I thought you should be calling ODFW or OSP.

It's 1 non-clipped chinook/day, 5/year, 2 chinook/day, one must be clipped, all coho must be clipped....biologist said the main body of the run is 1 to 2 weeks away still.

Hey mike123,
Your thoughts are right asking the sherriff does no good as far as fish and game laws. OSP is the only enforcement. However you do see the sherriff boats on the rivers and lakes but there just patroling the boat traffic. I think thats why a lot of people think this.

Yeah Kodiak, but I'm going out tomorrow! Maybe I can pick up a early one or two.
