Ocean salmon regs

the official announcement should be out soon but it looks like the ocean coho quota for Oregon this summer will be roughly the same as last year, Pepper and I are looking forward to putting some of that quota (a really really small but tasty portion) on the kayak. :cool:

They normally announce the Fall Salmon seasons in June. As for what they will be....¯\_(ツ)_/¯ cheers, roger

Adopted 2022 ocean salmon seasons based on NMFS regulations

The Commission adopted ocean salmon fishing regulations for state jurisdiction waters (within three miles offshore) based on Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC) adopted seasons. The primary limiting Chinook stocks considered in crafting 2022 ocean fisheries off Oregon were Columbia River natural tule and California Coastal Chinook. Other Chinook stocks of concern include Sacramento River Fall Chinook which have slightly improved, and Klamath River Fall Chinook whose abundance continues to be low. The ocean abundance forecast for Columbia River coho salmon is high at 997,200 fish, which would be slightly higher than last year's actual return. Season dates and bag limits are available on the PFMC website https://www.pcouncil.org/documents/2022/04/d-6-a-supplemental-stt-report-1-preliminary-analysis-of-tentative-2022-ocean-salmon-fishery-management-measures-04-12-2022.pdf/ and will be posted on MyODFW.com later.
