Lower Yakima River chinook catches continue to increase this past week

Here is the latest catch figures from Paul Hoffarth, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist in Pasco:

This past week WDFW staff interviewed 136 anglers fishing for salmon in the lower Yakima River with 29 adult chinook and 5 coho harvested.  Chinook are finally beginning to show and the fishing is picking up quickly. Anglers averaged a chinook for every 10 hours of fishing (38 hours per fish the week prior).  Fishing should continue to improve each week through the end of the season on October 22.

An estimated 242 salmon were caught this past week (209 fall Chinook and 33 coho) bringing the season total to 307 salmon.
