Sailors Beware, Spring Fishing is Here

The 2014 fishing season for spring Chinook on the Columbia begins today, March 1st, and will be in effect through April 7th.  This looks to be a highly anticipated season for anglers – Columbia River spring Chinook forecasts, released in mid-January, suggest that this year’s run will see almost twice as many fish as last year’s forecast and actual return.

So sailors, this means that there may be a lot more fisherman on the Columbia – so, do watch for fishing lines, follow right-of-way rules, be respectful and remember…our beautiful waterways belong to all of us.

For more information on this season’s Columbia River fishing regulations, go to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) webpage.
