Spring chinook salmon fishing on the Snake River is popular (shown here) as is fishing for Fall Chinook The fall salmon season is open from Buoy 10 at the mouth of the Columbia River upstream to the Oregon/Washington Border above McNary Dam. However, the Columbia River below Bonneville Dam has been closed by emergency degree to the retention of chinook. Anglers may still keep hatchery coho.

White sturgeon retention is closed from Buoy 10 upstream to McNary Dam but remains an option for catch-and-release fishing.

Trout fishing is good in high elevation lakes.

Panfish, bass, and catfish are biting well in local lakes and rivers.

Fishing for albacore tuna continues to be very good out of Ilwaco.

Coho fishing is good at Buoy 10.
