SALEM, Ore. — Anglers received good news this week as Fish and Wildlife commissioners approved fishing for wild coho on 10 rivers and one lake.
Anglers will be allowed to keep one wild coho in the Nehalem, Tillamook, Nestucca, Siletz, Yaquina, Alsea, Siuslaw, Umpqua, Coos and Coquille rivers and on Tenmile lakes.
The season on most rivers opens Sept. 15 and will continue through November, or until river-specific catch caps have been met.
A complete description of the 2012 coastal salmon seasons can be found on the Fish and Wildlife website.
