Umpqua wild coho fishery closes Saturday, Oct. 1
ROSEBURG, Ore. – The Umpqua River wild coho fishery will be closed beginning Saturday, Oct. 1, ODFW fishery managers said. The fishery is closed to both adult and jack wild coho salmon.
Since the season opened Sept. 15, anglers have harvested 1,095 wild coho. With several more days of harvest data coming in, managers estimate the 1,300 wild fish quota will be met.
“It’s been a popular fishery with 600 coho caught in the first four days,” said Laura Jackson, Umpqua District fish biologist.
