SALMON FISHING — State biologists are forecasting good returns of spring chinook salmon this year to Wind River and Drano Lake, popular sport-fishing spots in the Columbia River Gorge.
The prediction is for 8,400 adult spring chinook to enter the Columbia destined for the Wind River and 9,500 headed to Drano Lake, a large backwater at the mouth of the Little White Salmon River, reports By Allen Thomas of The Vancouver Columbian.
While not records, the returns would be more than enough salmon to provide robust fishing success if weather and water conditions are favorable.
