Oregon and Washington state fishery managers have finalized seasons and regulations for the Columbia River summer and fall recreational salmon and steelhead fisheries.

Upriver summer steelhead’s forecast of 99,700 is below average, requiring conservative retention regulations.

There will be no directed sockeye fishery in the Columbia River downstream of the Wenatchee River confluence, due to a forecast of 19,200 Wenatchee River sockeye, which is below the escapement goal.
