Slow steelhead fishing in Hanford Reach area of Columbia River

Steelhead fishing continues to be slow in the Hanford Reach, according to Paul Hoffarth, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist in Pasco.

Staff interviewed 18 anglers this past week at the Snyder and Ringold boat launches that fished 51 hours and harvested one hatchery steelhead.  So far this month, nine hatchery steelhead have been harvested and three wild steelhead have been released.
