Petition to Prohibit Wild Steelhead Retention in Oregon SW Zone Denied

Wild winter steelhead will continue to be harvested in Oregon’s SW Zone.

The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission denied a petition to prohibit the retention of wild winter steelhead in rivers throughout the SW Zone via a temporary rule in a split vote (4-2).

If you have the time watch the testimony from the more than 50 people who signed up to testify for and against the petition.
