  • ODFW manages record catch data for coldwater fish such as salmon and trout. OB&PC keeps records for warmwater fish. Check their Web sites for record forms and more information.
  • Follow submission guidelines on the forms, but it’s best to know ahead of time that you must catch the fish by legal sport-fishing methods and that you will need to have a photo of the fish with a recognizable side view, weigh your catch as soon as possible (fish lose body weight after landing) on state-certified scales and have signatures of two witnesses, including the person weighing the fish. The record form must be submitted to the appropriate organization within 30 days of the catch.
  • Oregon does not keep state record information for sturgeon because the maximum size limit is 60 inches.
