Coho And Steelhead Fishing Resumes On The Columbia

Recreational coho salmon and steelhead fishing will reopen at 12:01 a.m. Saturday on the mainstem Columbia River from the mouth at Buoy 10 upstream to the Highway 395 Bridge at Pasco.  Oregon and Washington fishery managers opted to reopen the coho and steelhead fisheries. which were closed along with Chinook salmon retention on October 22 to allow wild Snake River Chinook to move upstream.  Recent fish passage data at Bonneville and Ice Harbor dams indicate the Chinook migration is now essentially complete.  The Columbia River coho and steelhead fisheries are expected to proceed without any significant impact on remaining Chinook returns.  The bag limit under the new rules is up to two adult salmonids, and may include one hatchery steelhead.  Chinook retention remains closed through December 31.
