Columbia River sockeye and summer chinook fisheries
Action: Open sockeye fishery and close summer chinook from Megler-Astoria Bridge upstream to Bonneville Dam.
Effective date: Effective July 1 through July 31, 2018.
Species affected: Sockeye and summer chinook.
Location: Megler-Astoria Bridge upstream to Bonneville Dam.
Additional information: Daily limit 6, up to 2 adult sockeye or hatchery steelhead or 1 of each may be retained. Release all salmon other than hatchery jack 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.
