Spring chinook salmon fishing on the Snake River is popular (shown here) as is fishing for Fall Chinook The fall salmon season is now closed from the Tongue Point/Rocky Point line up to the Highway 395 bridge near Pasco. The closure remains in effect through Oct. 31 downstream of Bonneville Dam and through Dec. 31 upstream of Bonneville Dam.

Anglers may still fish for hatchery coho from Buoy 10 to the Tongue Point/ Rocky Point line.

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

White sturgeon retention will be open Saturday from the Wauna Powerlines upstream to Bonneville Dam.

Trout fishing is good in high elevation lakes.
