Limits Upped For Portland-area Steelies, Chinook

Stories in The Oregonian and report that the combined bag limit has been raised for steelhead and spring Chinook to three hatchery fish a day on the Sandy, Willamette and Clackamas starting today.

The bump in the bag is thanks to big early returns of steelhead, credited on the same conditions that produced last year’s big coho return.

“Lower water temperatures and higher flows are creating very, very good – almost ideal – fishing conditions,” The Oregonians quotes biologist Todd Alsbury as saying. “Plus, there haven’t been a lot of people out fishing.”
