Columbia reopens to coho and steelhead fishing

November 3, 2016

CLACKAMAS, Ore. – Recreational coho salmon and steelhead fishing will reopen at 12:01 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 5 on the mainstem Columbia River from the mouth at Buoy 10 upstream to the Hwy. 395 Bridge at Pasco Wash., under rules adopted today by fishery managers from Oregon and Washington.

Fishery managers opted to reopen the coho and steelhead fisheries, which were closed along with Chinook salmon retention on Oct. 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. Chinook retention remains closed through Dec. 31, 2016.

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.
