Columbia River sockeye and summer chinook fisheries
Action: Open sockeye fishery from Wells Dam to HWY 173 at Brewster
Effective date: Effective July 16 until further notice.
Species affected: Sockeye
Location: Wells Dam to HWY 173 at Brewster
Additional information: Daily limit 6, up to 4 adults may be retained. No more than 2 adult hatchery chinook and 2 sockeye may be retained. Release wild adult chinook and coho. 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.
