Spring Chinook fishery extended until June 15

OLYMPIA - The sport fishery for hatchery-reared
spring Chinook salmon has been extended through
June 15 on a section of the Columbia River

"We’re pleased that we can keep these fisheries
open right up to the end of the season," said
Cindy LeFleur, Columbia River policy coordinator
for the Washington Department of Fish and
Wildlife (WDFW). "Fishing conditions due to high
water levels haven’t been ideal this season and
this extension should give anglers a chance to
make up for lost time."
Today’s action allows boat and bank anglers to
continue fishing above Bonneville Dam from the
Tower Island power lines upriver to the
Washington/Oregon state line, 17 miles upriver
from McNary Dam. Bank fishing is also allowed
from Bonneville Dam upriver to the power lines,
located six miles below The Dalles Dam.
Anglers can retain up to two hatchery adult
Chinook salmon, marked with a clipped adipose
fin, as part of their daily catch limit. Sockeye
salmon and hatchery-reared steelhead also count
toward anglers’ adult daily limit. All unmarked
Chinook and steelhead must be released unharmed.
