FISHING — The Columbia River steelhead fishing report for December in the Hanford Reach isn't anything to get excited about.  Here's the summary just posted by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife fisheries biologist Paul Hoffarth in the Tri-Cities:

Cold weather has kept anglers away from the water in December. Only 82 angler trips taken in December so far.  Through December 15, staff interviewed 18 anglers with 1 wild steelhead released.
