Here they come! Steelhead, salmon pouring over Lower Granite Dam

FISHING — I love the looks of this graphic from the Fish Passage Center showing yesterday's spike of steelhead pouring over Lower Granite Dam. The big push up the Snake has begun!

From just over 240 fish a day a week ago, water temperatures had cooled and beckoned just more than 600 fish over the dam toward Lewiston on Sunday.

That pulse tripled on Monday to more than 1800 fish.

Fall chinook also are steaming upstream.
