John Day Pool of Columbia River offers mix of chinook, steelhead and walleye

Paul Hoffarth, a state Fish and Wildlife in Pasco reports an estimated 12 adult summer chinook and nine jack summer chinook were harvested this past week in the John Day Pool. No wild chinook or steelhead were caught.

Effort was fairly light with an estimated 220 angler trips for the week.

State Fish and Wildlife staff interviewed 39 anglers, 19-percent of the overall effort. For the fishery that began June 16, 18 adult hatchery summer chinook and 25 hatchery jack summer chinook have been harvested.

State Fish and Wildlife staff also collected information from all other anglers. Walleye fishing has been very good for this time of year and shad fishing is improving.

Bass: One boat with two anglers had no bass. Walleye: 22 boats with 51 anglers had 50 walleye. Sturgeon: Two boats with three anglers had no fish (catch and release only). Shad: Six boats with 17 anglers had 67 shad.
