Deer and elk hunting
General Rocky Mountain elk 2nd season opens Nov. 4-12. Conditions for big game hunting have improved with the rain. See reports below or the Big Game Hunting Forecast for what to expect.
Zone 1 duck season
Reopens Nov. 1 and continues through Jan. 28, 2018. Check out the waterfowl and upland bird harvest statistics at ODFW wildlife areas.
Western fall turkey
Western general season turkey is open through Dec. 31. Up to 4,000 tags will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Have you got yours yet?
Fall trout fishing continues
While many west side rivers and streams closed to trout on Oct. 31 in order to protect migrating smolts, many more water bodies remain open to fishing. These include most ponds, lakes, reservoirs and rivers/streams east of the Cascades. Just because sunburn is now off the table is no reason to put the trout gear away!
