Only hatchery Coho can be
retained, but any Chinook. Only one Chinook may be kept daily.
"Buoy 10 is probably the most popular salmon fishery in the state — and
with good reason," said Heather Bartlett said of the Washington
Department of Fish and Wildlife. "This year, we're planning for a catch
of 10,700 Chinook and 119,700 Coho...Fishing should be excellent."
Beginning Sept. 1 at Buoy 10, the daily limit is up to three hatchery
Coho or hatchery steelhead combined, although no more than two
steelhead. All Chinook must be released.
With more than 700,000 Coho anticipated to enter the Columbia River,
fishing in late-August and September is expected to be the best since
Barbed hooks are allowed at Buoy 10, although not in the adjacent ocean
In the lower Columbia, all Chinook must be released downstream of the
mouth of the Lewis River beginning Sept. 13.
The boundary is a line projected from Warrior Rock lighthouse on Sauvie

Potholes reservoir, and Banks offers some very consistent action for

With such a big Coho run

Coho opens Saturday, a month earlier than in past years. Wild adult and
jack Chinook must be released.
Kalama River — All wild adult and jack Chinook must be released.
Lewis River — Fin-clipped Chinook may be kept through Sept. 30. Anglers
also may use a floating device on the North Fork of the Lewis from
Johnson Creek (below the salmon hatchery) to Colvin Creek (upstream of
the salmon hatchery) through September.
Mid-Columbia — The night-closure and anti-snagging rules for salmon and
steelhead will be in effect from Bonneville to McNary dams through Oct.
15. Previously, the night closure and old non-buoyant lure restriction
