Fishing Season Extended

Print Article

NW Hook & Bullet

We knew that there was a bumper crop of fall Chinook headed for the Hanford Reach area on the Columbia River this year, and they did show up. So many have arrived to the upper Columbia that the season on fall Chinook in the Hanford Reach has been extended.

Anglers can keep six salmon, two of which may be adults may be kept during the extended season, and both hatchery clipped and wild fish may be retained. Anglers can keep coho in this stretch, too.

The season, which was scheduled to close on the 22nd will now remain open through October 31st. I would encourage everyone to check the WDFW web site for the details about the exact area that will be open.

Another season that will remain open through the end of the month is the annual fall trout fishing season on Jameson Lake. I have fished here in the fall many times and it is a great time to be on Jameson. There are lots of fresh plants being taken right now, but there are always some real whoppers taken in the fall season at Jameson. You can check in with both resorts on the lake by visiting my Anglers Directory at FishingMagician.com.
