Columbia steelhead bag cut to one fish above McNary Dam

Sept. 13, 2016

CLACKAMAS, Ore. – Sport fishermen may only retain one hatchery steelhead upstream of McNary Dam, effective Sept. 15 - Dec. 31, under rules adopted by Columbia River fishery managers.

The one steelhead bag limit, originally scheduled to begin Nov. 1 upstream of McNary Dam, will be implemented earlier to aid passage of wild steelhead destined for the upper Columbia, which are tracking behind expectations this year.

Reduced bag limits in downstream Columbia River fisheries began Aug. 1 downstream of Bonneville Dam and Sept. 1 between Bonneville and McNary dams.
