Columbia River still dishing out a nice mix of fish

Here is the latest fishing report this week from state Fish and Wildlife for the Columbia River region:

Salmon

During the first three days of July, state Fish and Wildlife sampled just over 1,200 salmon anglers (including 146 boats) with 75 adult and 18 jack summer chinook, 102 steelhead, and 27 sockeye. 48 (64-percent) of the adult and 14 (78-percent) of the jacks were kept as were 67 (66-percent) of the steelhead, and all but two (93-percent) of the sockeye.

Sturgeon

Above Wauna, state Fish and Wildlife sampled legal-sized sturgeon kept from Camas to Kalama.

Shad

Based on mainly incomplete trips, bank anglers just below Bonneville Dam averaged just over 2.5 shad per rod. Bank anglers off Steamboat Landing Dock in Washougal caught some fish as did boat anglers in the gorge and in Camas/Washougal.
