Excellent! Oregon Spring Fishing Forecast (2011) Out

Note to self: Time next flame run to the inlaws in Newport a wee bit later, say June-July. That’s the peak of the summer steelhead fishery on the Siletz.

That’s what the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s 72-page fresh-off-the-err-desktop spring fishing forecast PDF tells me.

Also available as a word doc, it talks up fisheries from the state’s Central Coast to its Snake Coast, and everywhere in between.

High-grading my way through, ODFW says Diamond Lake should offer “excellent” fishing for more than 400,000 holdovers this season, Arizona Pond is an “excellent place to take kids,” Coos and Coquille Bays offer “excellent” fall crabbing, and streams in the nearby Elliott State Forest offer “excellent cutthroat trout fishing away from the crowds.”

All in all, an excellent little download!
