"One bright spot is the Buoy 10 fishery near the mouth of the Columbia River, where anglers will have 31 days to catch chinook salmon, compared to just 12 days last year.

This year’s fishery should benefit from an estimated return of 86,200 chinook – up from 14,600 last year – bound for the Spring Creek Hatchery above Bonneville Dam, said Cindy LeFleur, WDFW Columbia River policy coordinator.

“The goal is to target those healthy upriver hatchery stocks, which tend to bite well when they first enter the river,” LeFleur said. “We’re also expecting a strong return of chinook reared in net pens in select areas throughout the lower river.”
