Fishing Report, November 28

The Columbian, November 28, 2019

An adult steelhead sees its impending fate in a fisherman's net. The Columbia River is open to the retention of hatchery coho salmon and hatchery steelhead from Buoy 10 up to the Bonneville Dam. Only one steelhead may be retained as part of a two-fish limit. Chinook retention is closed.

Fishing for salmon or steelhead from Bonneville Dam to the Hwy. 395 Bridge in Pasco is closed for the year.

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. A few late run coho are available in local tributaries.

Large rainbow trout have been stocked into local lakes for the Black Friday fishing event.

It's a free fishing weekend in Oregon. Anglers can fish, clam, crab, and more in the Beaver State without a license both Friday and Saturday. All other regulations apply.

Walleye fishing has slowed.
