With the removal of Powerdale Dam, ODFW has adopted regulations expanding salmon and steelhead fishing on the main stem river from the mouth to the confluence with the East Fork, and the West Fork from the confluence with the main stem to the angling deadline 200 feet downstream of Punchbowl Falls. There has been some confusion about the upstream angling deadline in the main stem river; for clarification, the entire Hood River main stem is open from the confluence with the West Fork downstream to the Columbia.
