Lower Columbia picking up steam for summer chinook and sockeye

Salmon anglers are making quite a few fishing trips to the Lower Columbia River, and catches were looking fairly good.

Last week, anglers on the Lower Columbia made 15,100 trips and caught 2,525 adult summer chinook (1,759 kept and 766 released) and 483 sockeye (366 kept and 117 released).

Boat angler effort increased from the previous week while bank angler effort was similar.

Catch rates for chinook increased for both boat and bank anglers, and sockeye catch rates picked up for bank anglers.

Washington bank anglers were also catching quite a few more steelhead last week.
