PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- West Coast ocean salmon fishing seasons have been set for this year and promise lots of opportunities for both sport and commercial fishing, particularly off Oregon and California.
The Pacific Fishery Management Council adopted the seasons Thursday in Portland. They still have to be approved by NOAA Fisheries Service.
Forecasts call for strong returns to the Klamath and Sacramento rivers in California, which account for most of the salmon swimming off Oregon and California.
That is a marked improvement over 2008 and 2009, when poor returns to the Sacramento led to the biggest salmon fishery closure on record.
Specific seasons are set depending on location and species, but they generally run from spring into fall.
