Decent fishing in the Columbia River carries over into this month

Well the Lower Columbia River sport fishery is still going pretty hot and heavy, and has continued right into this month although the bad weather did slow it down a bit.

From Aug. 1-Sept. 7,an estimated 77,389 angler trips from the Rocky Point/Tongue Point line upstream to Bonneville Dam have produced a catch of 11,366 adult cinook and 6,170 steelhead kept,plus 3,787 steelhead released.

“That was a lot of trips taken and a record in August, and the catch was a record too,” said Joe Hymer, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist.

In the first seven days of this month alone there was 30,000 angler trips taken, and they ended up catching 5,700 adult chinook.

“Effort was pretty heavy on Labor Day with 1,800 boats out,” Hymer said.
