Outdoor writer Dave Graybill points rod at Yakima River coho

Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:

Anglers will be happy to learn that the coho salmon season that opened earlier on the Yakima River has been extended.

Earlier the season was opened when 15,000 coho were recorded passing over Prosser Dam; as of November 3rd over 20,000 coho salmon have now passed over Prosser and the season will now remain open through November 16th.

Anglers are reminded that the limit is two fish marked or unmarked and barbless hooks are required. During this fishery Selective Fishery rules prohibiting the use of bait and knotted nets is temporarily suspended. Fishing for trout and other gamefish closed on October 31st.

Fishing for steelhead remains closed. A Columbia River Salmon/Steelhead Endorsement is required to participate in this salmon fishery. The Columbia River Salmon/Steelhead Endorsement program funding enabled this special fishery.

The Yakima River coho fishery is open from the Interstate 82 Bridge at Union Gap to the “closed water” line 3,500 feet downstream of Rosa Dam. Please visit the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife web site for more details on this fishery.
