Buoy 10 catch limit for hatchery coho increases to three daily

10621026_10204574880880809_889613877_nMore good news for salmon anglers on the Columbia River!

Beginning Friday, Oct. 3 anglers will be able to keep up to three adult hatchery coho in their daily limit at the Buoy 10 fisher located near the Lower Columbia River mouth.

This comes as a huge return of coho is migrating up the big river. Through Oct. 1, 185, 388 adult coho have passed through the Bonneville Dam fish counter.

The bonus catch in the fishery will remain in effect through Dec. 31. Anglers will be able to keep up to three adult salmon or hatchery steelhead daily, and only hatchery coho with a missing adipose fin may be kept. Anglers must release all wild coho.
