May 29, 2015
KLICKITAT SALMON AND STEELHEAD SEASONS OPENS JUNE 1st
Well here we go, Salmon and Steelhead fishing already! The run is a bit early and WAY above the 10 year average. This is good news even if you can't get out fishing this next month. Anytime a Salmon run is strong, it is a very good thing. Please take a close look at the chart to see just how big this run is. The Spring Chinook and Steelhead seasons will open June 1st with increased daily limit of three hatchery steelhead and two hatchery spring chinook.
The Klickitat river has spring Chinook from Fisher Hill Bridge to the hatchery. Spring Chinook passage at Bonneville Dam continues daily above 2,000 salmon.
