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 2001.

Barbed hooks are allowed at Buoy 10, although not in the adjacent ocean waters.
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 Island through red buoy No. 4 to the orange marker atop the dolphin on the lower end of Bachelor Island.

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 did not include The Dalles and John Day pools.
