Fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing in Oregon remain open. However, Oregon State Parks as well as several cities and counties have closed parks, boat ramps and other facilities that could hinder access to your favorite spots. This list of closures changes quickly, so it’s a good idea to call the land manager and confirm access before you go.
You don’t need to travel far…Fish, hunt and watch close to home
With Governor Brown asking Oregonians to limit nonessential travel, this is a good time to explore your local waters and wild areas. With hundreds of places to fish in Oregon, there’s sure to be a place or two near you, and great bird watching can be as close as your own backyard.
Check the zone reports to find a location near you.
Trout stocking schedule offline – Limiting congestion at stocking locations
We have taken down the online trout stocking schedule in order to prevent public crowding at waterbodies when we deliver hatchery fish. We will continue stocking trout but we will deliver on a slightly different schedule and at some different locations to avoid a rush of anglers showing up along with the hatchery truck.
We will continue to stock popular lakes and ponds as long as people do their part and continue to use social distancing. We want to spread out angling effort in terms of timing and physical distance between anglers by not sharing our stocking schedule with the public. Thank you for understanding and doing your part to keep each other safe.
NOTE: Local ODFW offices do not have access to the trout stocking schedule either.
