Anglers can again catch and retain coho salmon and hatchery steelhead on the Columbia River up to the blue bridge in the Tri-Cities.
Wild Snake River fall chinook salmon have cleared the Columbia River, according to the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Fishing for salmon and steelhead had been closed since Oct 22 to protect Snake River fall chinook, which are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.
The season is expected to remain open for the main stem of the Columbia, with the exception of Beacon Rock to Bonneville Dam, until Dec. 31.
Never miss a local story.
The daily limit is two salmonids, only one of which may be a hatchery steelhead.
