Big Run of Fall Chinook has Started

Spokesman-Review, September 3, 2013

A salmon guide shows off the days catch of Fall Chinook salmon. FISHING -- The bulk of this year's lower than average steelhead run has climbed over Bonneville Dam, the first dam they reach on the Columbia River, and all eyes are upstream.

As you can see from the charts, the fish are making their way upstream and good things are about to happen in the Lewiston-Clarkston area.

If Clearwater-Snake water temperatures cool a bit more, the number of steelhead climbing over Lower Granite should spike any day. Lower Granite is the last dam on the Snake before the fish reach Idaho waters.

Are you ready?
