State fisheries reports record Lower Columbia coho catch dating back to 1986

Last week on the Lower Columbia, anglers made 11,512 trips and caught 3,165 adult Chinook (2,612 kept and 553 released), 567 adult coho (327 kept and 240 released) and 38 summer steelhead (30 kept and eight released) – see attached.

From August 1 through September 21, there have been an estimated 119,885 angler trips and 22,483 Chinook, 6,842 steelhead, and 4,919 coho kept.

FACTOIDS

Since at least 1980:

The coho catch is a new record! (previous record 4,027 fish in 1986).

The angler trips and Chinook kept are the 4th highest on record.  Last year was the record for both (141,481 angler trips and 31,879 Chinook kept).  With over a month to go, will we set a new record?

The steelhead kept catch from August through October is the 3rd largest.  The record was 12,053 fish in 2011 which seems pretty safe at this point.
