Fishermen display their catch of Chinook Salmon. FISHING -- Salmon fishermen in the Little Goose Dam area of the Snake River will get another shot at spring chinook for three days starting Thursday, May 7, thanks to an unexpected bounty of fish headed upstream.

The 2015 spring chinook salmon forecast was updated last week to 220,000 into the Columbia River.

It was upgraded again on Monday to 241,000, said John Whalen, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife regional fisheries manager in Spokane.

"The Little Goose area will open Thursday for its three-day rotation through Saturday," he said Monday night, noting that the department will be posting a clarification on the fishing season updates portion of its website sometime today, May 5.

That means all four of Washington's Snake River spring chinook zones will be in the action this week as announced in April.
