Spring Chinook fishery will reopen
May 15 on the lower Columbia River
OLYMPIA - With thousands of spring Chinook Salmon
now moving up fish ladders at Bonneville Dam,
fishery managers from Washington and Oregon have
agreed to reopen the popular Salmon fishery on the
lower Columbia River through June 15.
Starting Sunday, May 15, boat and bank anglers can
fish for hatchery-reared spring Chinook Salmon from
Rocky Point/Tongue Point upriver to Beacon Rock.
Bank fishing will also be allowed four miles farther
upriver to the fishing boundary below Bonneville
Anglers can retain one hatchery-reared adult Chinook
Salmon as part of their daily limit.
All wild Chinook not marked as hatchery fish by a
clipped adipose fin must be released unharmed.
In areas open to spring Chinook fishing, anglers may
also retain sockeye Salmon and hatchery steelhead
under regulations outlined in the Fishing in
Washington rules pamphlet.
Since late April, the number of Chinook Salmon
passing Bonneville Dam has increased dramatically,
opening the door to additional fishing
opportunities, said Cindy LeFleur, Columbia River
policy coordinator for the Washington Department of
Fish and Wildlife (WDFW).
On May 11, state and tribal fishery managers raised
their initial estimate of upriver-bound spring
Chinook from 198,400 fish to 210,000 fish, making
thousands more Chinook Salmon available for harvest
on the lower river.
"The fish took their time moving upriver, but
they’re making up for it now," LeFleur said. "This
opening will give anglers another chance to catch
spring Chinook on the lower river."
Under the updated run forecast, anglers fishing
below Bonneville Dam can catch up to 3,800 more
upriver spring Chinook, including some still
available from the initial fishing season that ended
April 19. The late timing of this year’s run,
together with cold, turbid water conditions, held
the total catch during the early fishery below the
area harvest guideline.
Additional fish also became available to anglers
this week when fishery managers lifted a 30 percent
"buffer" on the pre-season forecast, designed as a
safeguard against overharvesting the run. Now that
run forecast has been raised, those fish are
available for harvest.
"The surge of fish that contributed to the new
forecast provides a lot more certainty in setting
fishing seasons on the Columbia River," LeFleur
LeFleur noted that the decision to reopen the spring
Chinook fishery on the lower river does not apply to
waters above Bonneville Dam or to the Snake River.
The Columbia River fishery above Bonneville Dam
closed May 10 after anglers reached their catch
allocation under the new run forecast. On the Snake
River, spring Chinook fishing will close below Ice
Harbor Dam May 14 and on the rest of the river May
16. There, too, anglers are expected to reach their
current catch allocation after a stretch of good
"We may consider reopening fisheries in those areas
if strong returns of spring Chinook Salmon
keep bumping up the run forecast," LeFleur said.
"But that will be a separate decision."
