Cape Falcon to Humbug Mountain (including Garibaldi,

Pacific City, Depoe Bay, Newport, Florence, Winchester Bay, Charleston, Bandon and Port Orford) - Open now through Oct. 31 for chinook, except: All salmon including hatchery coho June 24 through July 31 or a quota of 18,000 coho. Bag limit is two fish per day. Note: A non-clip coho season will be allowed Sept. 2-30 or a quota of 6,000 coho. 

Chinook fishing resumes Aug. 1 or after hatchery coho quota is caught.
