Commercial gill-netters land fish in the first Lower Columbia fishery

The first commercial gill-net fishery in the Lower Columbia River netted spring chinook catches that were expected on Tuesday.

“The catches were in the ranges we expected, and it was not too bad,” said Joe Hymer, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist in Vancouver.

Hymer says all the catch landings haven’t been tallied as fishermen aren’t required to turn them in until 24 hours after the fishery has ended.

“It sounded like they averaged 20 fish per boat, and some did better with catches up to 55 or 60 fish,” Hymer said.

The final catch results for the Tuesday fishery should be known in the next day or so.
