Buoy 10 king salmon fishing season too hot to last?

UPDATE at 5 p.m.:  Hot Buoy 10 fishery gets reprieve.

SALMON FISHING -- With anglers catching up to 1,600 chinook salmon a day at Buoy 10, the fishery at the mouth of the Columbia is nearing it's quota for kings earlier than normal.

Al Thomas of the Vancouver Columbian reports the season could be closed as early as Thursday.

But fish managers are meeting this afternoon to see if they can work out a plan to extend the fishery through the weekend.
