The Columbia River Technical Advisory Committee (a group of biologist and fisheries managers) met Monday, May 13, and provided an official update for the 2013 upriver spring chinook return.
The TAC currently projects a return of 107,500 adult spring chinook to the Columbia River mouth (100,000 adults at Bonneville Dam).
The pre-season forecast was 141,400 adults to the mouth of the Columbia.
TAC will continue to monitor the run as it progresses and is scheduled to meet again Monday, May 20.
