Lower Grande River to reopen a second time for hatchery spring kings

After a brief opening in late June, the first in 40 years, the Lower Grande Ronde River will reopen again for hatchery spring chinook fishing from Saturday, July 5 through Monday, July.

Anglers will be able to fish from the Highway 129 Bridge upstream approximately 12 miles to the farthest upstream Oregon/Washington boundary line.

State Fishery managers from Washington and Oregon were seeing how good a fishery would be that targets hatchery spring chinook bound for the Lostine River in Oregon.

Daily limit is seven hatchery chinook and only two may be adult chinook. Anglers must stop fishing for the day when they reach their daily limit of adult fish.

Anglers must use barbless hooks no larger than 5/8 inch from point to shank. A night closure also is in effect.
