Columbia River sockeye and summer chinook fisheries
Action: Open sockeye fishery from Bonneville Dam to HWY 395 Bridge at Pasco
Effective date: Effective July 1 through July 31, 2018
Species affected: Sockeye
Location: Bonneville Dam to HWY 395 Bridge at Pasco
Additional information: Daily limit 6, up to 2 adult salmon or hatchery steelhead or 1 of each may be retained. Release all salmon other than hatchery chinook, sockeye. Salmon minimum size is 12 inches.
Reason for action: This action provides recreational angling opportunity based a runsize upgrade of sockeye passage at Bonneville Dam. Summer chinook is tracking below the pre-season forecast, and as a result much of the allocation sharing will likely shift upstream to above Priest Rapids Dam, thus retention below Bonneville Dam is closed
