Latest Lower Columbia River sport catch, which is third largest since 1980

Last week on the lower Columbia, anglers made 13,853 trips and caught 5,438 adult fall Chinook (3,030 kept and 2,408 released), 39 steelhead (32 kept and seven released), and 212 coho (109 kept and 103 released).

The cumulative catch through Sept 15 is 33,385 adult Chinook (26,137 kept and 7,248 released) from 114,357 angler trips – see attached.  These numbers include the MSF fishery between Tongue Point and Warrior Rock which commenced on September 6.  A separate catch estimate for the MSF fishery should be available later this afternoon.

The sport catch this season is the third largest since at least 1980.  Record is 28,169 fish kept in 2011.
