Washington and Oregon fish and wildlife have announced a 15-day fishing season for summer Chinook Salmon and sockeye salmon in the lower Columbia River in June. This is going to be some great fishing.
Fishing will be open downstream of Bonneville Dam from June 16 threw June 30 with a daily bag limit of two adult salmon or steelhead or one of both. Only fin-clipped hatchery Chinook Salmon or steelhead, may be kept but any sockeye, may be retained.
It is possible Chinook Salmon remaining on the spring allocation might be caught in mid-June, allowing the season to open before June 16.
A summer Chinook Salmon run of 73,500 is forecast to enter the Columbia. The return in 2012 was 58,300.
