FISHING -- Owing to poor water conditions and a slow start, spring chinook anglers on the lower Columbia River have been given an extra six days of salmon fishing under a season extension adopted by Oregon and Washington fishery managers.
The extended season will run through April 14. Reports indicate catch rates are very good for chromers.
That means anglers must watch closely for modifications that can be made if anglers catch more fish than expected.
The bag limits and areas open to fishing remain the same during the extension:
From Buoy 10 upstream to Beacon Rock (boat and bank) plus bank fishing only from Beacon Rock upstream to the Bonneville Dam deadline. Anglers may keep two adult salmonids a day, of which only one may be a Chinook. Only adipose fin-clipped fish may be kept.
