Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
To Klamath Water Users, followed by ODFW report
Attached is the ODFW report covering the end of the Spring Salmon Opportunity off the Oregon Cost. July and August are closed in response to Klamath Fall Chinook concerns and the troll season will resume September 1, from Cape Falcon Oregon to the OR/CA border.
Effort is down for 2005, yet catch estimates are up even with Coos Bay Cell Closed the entire month of June and the Newport Cell fishing only 3 days a week in May.
It is not too late for Oregon Salmon Trollers to salvage a reasonable season if the currently warm water off Oregon cools and the weather coorporates in September and October.
Currently the wind has blown most of the first 15 days of July and the water is very warm (Tuna water) so not much salmon opportunity has been lost.
