ODFW Updates Steelhead Fishing Restrictions in the Columbia River


Effective today, Jan. 6, and continuing through March 31, the Columbia River mainstem is closed to both angling for and retention of steelhead from The Dalles Dam upstream to the Oregon/Washington border (upstream of McNary Dam).

The rule has been modified by the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife to reflect the original intent to close angling for steelhead.


  1. This is a bunch of crap it’s just like salmon if it’s below Bonneville you can catch all the fish you want but when they make it to McNary they shut it down. It’s more odfw bs
