Steelhead A-Run size downgraded 27 percent

FISHING — Columbia River fish managers today reduced their early forecast for the steelhead run moving up the Columbia, upper Columbia and Snake Rivers.

Says Joe Hymer of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife:

The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) met this morning, August 19, 2013, to review the summer steelhead run size.  TAC agreed to update the “A” or small steelhead component of the run to 212,000 fish.  This is a decrease from the preseason forecast of 291,000 fish.  TAC reviewed but did not update other components of the steelhead run, or the fall Chinook run.  TAC will meet again on August 26, 2013.
