SALEM —The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission will consider the 2013 ocean salmon and halibut seasons when it meets in Salem on May 10. The meeting begins at 8 a.m. at ODFW Headquarters in Salem, 3406 Cherry Ave NE.

The Commission will be asked to adopt regulations for ocean coho and chinook salmon fishing in Oregon's territorial waters from shore to three miles out. The seasons for ocean waters beyond three miles were set by the Pacific Fishery Management Council in early April and the Commission will be asked to adopt similar regulations for state waters.

Recreational and commercial troll chinook salmon fishing on the central and south coast looks especially good thanks to strong returns to the Sacramento and Klamath rivers. Anglers on the north coast also can expect good returns of chinook to the Columbia River.
