Record number of summer steelhead encountered by Columbia River anglers possible

State Fish and Wildlife says it’s possible they may be seeing a record number of wild and hatchery steelhead handled for the month of July.

To date, Washington alone has sampled almost 1,600 fish.

Assuming a 10-percent sample rate, then 16,000 fish would have been handled with still a week to go. 45-percent of the fish they’ve sampled in July have been wild.

The record is 16,000 fish handled in July 2009.

“Stay tuned!” says Joe Hymer, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist in Vancouver.
