There are a bunch of changes coming in from the Columbia River region, and this is due in part to the increased fall chinook run size.
The latest calls for anglers being allowed to keep any legal-size fall chinook in the Columbia River in Wanapum Pool, which covers water from Wanapum Dam to Rock Island Dam from Sept. 21 to Oct. 15.
Daily limit is six chinook, up to two may be adult chinook. Minimum size is 12 inches. Anglers may retain any legal size chinook regardless of whether the adipose fin has been clipped or not.
There are currently close to 20,000 adult fall chinook returning to the Wanapum Pool, which is four times the 10 year average.
