ODFW to release salmon in Powder River


The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife plans to release about 200 adult chinook salmon this week in the Powder River just below Mason Dam.

Anglers will be able to fish for these salmon through Sept. 1 along the river from the dam downstream to the Hughes Lane bridge in north Baker City. The daily bag limit will be two spring chinook.

The release is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday.

ODFW has released adult chinook in the Powder River several years in the past decade. The fish are surplus chinook caught in the trap just below Hells Canyon Dam on the Snake River. The dam prevents salmon from migrating farther upstream.

Anglers are reminded that much of the reach of the Powder River between Mason Dam and Baker City is through private land. Anglers should always ask permission before entering private property. The first mile or so downstream from the dam is public land.

To confirm the release date, call ODFW's La Grande office at 541-963-2138.
