Still good for steelhead and salmon in Lower Columbia River

Here is the latest salmon catch information provided by state Fish and Wildlife for the Lower Columbia River:

During July 5-11, anglers on the Lower Columbia made 10,685 trips and caught 1,196 adult summer chinook (749 kept and 447 released) and 239 sockeye (199 kept and 40 released).

Joe Hymer, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist in Vancouver says it is still pretty decent steelhead catches in Longview area downstream, and chinook and sockeye caught here and there (in Lower Columbia).
