Lower Columbia River sport fishery catch update

Here is a look at the Lower Columbia river sport fishery:

During June 27-30, anglers made 7,268 trips and caught 1,361 summer chinook (885 kept and 476 released) and 354 sockeye (218 kept and 136 released).

Summer chinook catch rates showed an overall increase from last week, but catches decreased in some areas while catches increased markedly in other areas (particularly in the gorge for boat anglers).

Sockeye catch rates declined everywhere with the exception of the Washington bank near Longview.
