At this point, summer steelhead “A” run is smaller than forecast

Run size:

The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) met this morning, August 19, 2013, to review the summer steelhead run sze.  TAC agreed to update the “A” or small steelhead component of the run to 212,000 fish.

This is a decrease from the preseason forecast of 291,000 fish.  TAC reviewed but did not update other components of the steelhead run, or the fall Chinook run.  TAC will meet again on August 26, 2013.

Sport catch 

On the lower Columbia mainstem below Bonneville Dam, an estimated 4,219 steelhead were kept and 5,707 released in July.
