Emergency Fishing Closures in the Deschutes

Tomorrow, September 1, 2021, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is closing summer steelhead fishing in parts of Central Oregon for the entire month of September, including sections of the Deschutes River. The department says it’s an emergency measure prompted by extremely low returns, and say it will offer the best chance for the fish populations to rebound. The part of the Deschutes impacted by the steelhead restriction is from the lower end of Moody Rapids upstream to Sherars Falls. Fishing of any kind is prohibited during September from the lower end of Moody Rapids downstream to the mouth of the River at the I-84 bridge.
