Yakima River chinook catch continues to build

Here is the latest salmon catch data for the Yakima River by state Fish and Wildlife:

This past week WDFW staff interviewed 124 anglers fishing for salmon in the lower Yakima River with 29 adult chinook, 5 Chinook jacks, and 2 coho harvested. Anglers averaged a chinook for every 11 hours of fishing.  Fishing should continue to improve each week through the end of the season on October 22.

An estimated 306 salmon were caught this past week (249 adult fall Chinook, 43 jacks, and 15 coho) bringing the season total to 613 salmon.  Chinook counts at Prosser have dropped off a bit but large numbers of coho are moving upstream.
