Here is a press release on expanding the boundary line at the Wind River spring chinook fishery.
State Fish and Wildlife decided to expand the boundary at the fishery about 250 yards into the Columbia River mainstem. The new area will be marked by a white buoy line.
John Weinheimer, a WDFW fish biologist, said in a news release that the fishing area was expanded to help relieve crowding at the mouth of the Wind River, where up to 200 boats a day often compete for space during the peak of the spring chinook season in late April and May.
Fisheries managers say a forecast of 8,400 hatchery spring chinook should return to the Wind River compared to 7,800 last year.
