FISHING – If you haven’t been able to catch your own spring chinook in this year’s run, Columbia River tribes are selling them fresh from their nets this weekend for the first time in four years.

 A two-night commercial gillnet fishery is tapping the largest run in four years. 

 Fish will be sold at locations along the Columbia, including Marine Park at Cascade Locks, Lone Pine at The Dalles,  the boat launch near Roosevelt, Washington, and Columbia Point Marina in Richland.

Information on where the day’s catch is being sold is available at (888) 289-1855 or online. 

Price is determined at the point of sale and sales are cash only.
