PORTLAND, Ore. -- Improved salmon stocks from the Klamath and Sacramento rivers in Oregon mean a longer fishing season near the Washington border.
The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission on Friday set its 2012 ocean salmon and halibut seasons. The regulations must be approved by the National Marine Fishery Service and the U.S. Secretary of Commerce.
From Leadbetter Point to Cape Falcon in Oregon, a smaller Chinook season will open on June 9 with an 8,000-fish catch limit, ending June 23, when the full coho and Chinook season begin and last until the end of September.
The commission also approved a nine percent increase in the halibut quota.
The commission also denied a petition to change trapping regulations by reducing the trap check time from every 48 hours to every 24 hours.
