Anglers tapping record run of king salmon this season

Four lucky anglers found their way to the Ringold Springs boat launch in the pre-dawn darkness last week and used flashlights to find their fishing guide. They’d booked a salmon fishing trip in the Hanford Reach of the Columbia River with a day’s notice only because another group of anglers had canceled with Reel Time Fishing guide Toby Wyatt. Normally a last-minute group cancellation is a direct $600-$1,500 blow to a guide’s bottom line.

Yakama tribe reviving another run of sockeye

In its fourth year of a program to reintroduce sockeye salmon to the Yakima River Basin, the Yakama Nation has been collecting thousands of adult fish for release in a lake on the east slope of the Cascades.
