Columbia River spring chinook update happening Monday

Anglers might be losing sleep this weekend as they await word on the possibility of spring chinook fishing reopening in areas of Columbia River mainstem.

There will be an update on Monday (May 13) by Columbia River Technical Advisory Committee, and it looks like the spring chinook forecast might not get to 140,000, but still should be a pretty positive run-size update.

Sport and commercial fisheries below Bonneville Dam came in short of predicted catch buffers.

Fisheries officials on Friday said they might be able to provide more Columbia mainstem opportunities, but will know for sure after Monday to see where things are at, and a decision could happen by Tuesday (May 14).
