Track River Report

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The Trask is closed to the retention of wild Chinook this year, but there will be a few hatchery Chinook available for harvest. The Trask also gets a hatchery coho run, and these fish are returning to the river in good numbers. A heavy rain event is predicted for Friday, which could have the river high and off color, but fishing should be decent once it starts to drop. 

  • The Trask from 200 feet above Gold Creek at Trask Hatchery and 900 feet below (which includes the hatchery hole) is closed to angling July 16 to Oct. 15. Closed from marker at Dam Hole (MP 7 on Trask River Rd) up to Blue Ridge Cr Sept. 1 to Nov. 30.
  • Cutthroat trout fishing closed on Oct. 31. It will reopen May 22, 2023.
