You’ll now have to pay to harvest a wild steelhead on the Oregon South Coast

Now you’ll have to pay for the privilege to kill a wild steelhead to raise money to study if there are enough wild steelhead to justify killing wild steelhead.

Oregon South Coast anglers who wish to take part in one of North America’s last opportunities to take home a wild steelhead must buy a new South Coast wild steelhead harvest card.

The new fees will help fund research and monitoring of wild steelhead populations and harvest on these rivers as outlined by ODFW’s new Rogue-South Coast Plan to govern steelhead management in these rivers.

The cost is $10 for OR residents and $20 for non-residents.
