Fall chinook action picking up in Yakima River

Anglers are beginning to fish for salmon in the Yakima River, and state Fish and Wildlife staff talked with 20 anglers fishing this week.

There were an estimated 211 angler trips for the week with 50 adult fall chinook harvested and 12 adult chinook released.

Harvest was evenly split between the river below Horn Rapids Dam and below the Prosser diversion.
