No barb hook ruling on Columbia River expands further upstream

As the new month rolls around in a few days, there will be some new regulation changes happening for salmon or steelhead fisheries in the Columbia River and most of its tributaries below Chief Joseph Dam.

Barbed hooks won’t be allowed on another 250 miles upriver on the Columbia River and to dozens of its tributaries, including the Cowlitz, White Salmon, Klickitat, Snake, Yakima and Okanogan rivers.

This rule is currently in effect on the Columbia River that constitutes the border between Washington and Oregon. Anglers may use single, double-point or treble hooks provided the barbs are pinched.

For more details, please look view the state Fish and Wildlife news release at http://wdfw.wa.gov/news/apr2313b/.
