SALEM, Ore – Recreational ocean salmon angling closes 12:01 a.m. on Monday, August 30 within the Columbia River Ocean Salmon Management Area (Leadbetter Point, WA to Cape Falcon, OR).

Through Aug. 22, an estimated 34,080 marked coho have already been landed in this area, and fishery managers expect harvest to approach the 42,400 quota by the end of the day Sunday, Aug. 29.
