No decision yet on reopening Columbia River mainstem for spring chinook fishing

Here is a link to the Vancouver Columbian outdoor reporter Allen Thomas’ story on possibly reopening spring chinook fishing in the Columbia River mainstem.

According to the story Washington and Oregon fisheries haven’t made a decision either way, but sport fishing could reopen between May 22 and May 25. Fishing in the Lower Columbia has been closed since April 12. On Monday, fisheries officials downgraded the run size from 141,400 to 107,500.
