Upper Klickitat River opens for spring chinook fishing starting Thursday

The Klickitat Salmon Hatchery is approaching their spring chinook spawning escapement goal, which will allow the Upper Klickitat River to open for hatchery salmon fishing beginning Thursday, June 13.

The river will be open July 31 from 400 feet upstream from Number 5 fishway (located about ½ mile up from the Fisher Hill Bridge) to boundary markers below the salmon hatchery.

Daily limit is six salmon, but only two may be hatchery-marked adult spring chinook.

Through Monday, June 10, 351 adult spring chinook have returned to the hatchery with an escapement goal of 500 fish.

The river below Fisher Hill Bridge (located about two miles upstream from the mouth) is currently open for fishing.

Fishing is closed from Fisher Hill Bridge to 400 feet upstream from Number 5 fishway, and from the boundary markers below Klickitat Salmon Hatchery to the boundary markers just upstream of the hatchery. Areas upstream from the salmon hatchery remains closed to fishing for salmon.
