Columbia Springers
« on: February 19, 2017, 04:36:07 PM »
Anybody have any idea when this season will be posted?  I am thinking about trying to get a few Springers in the freezer this year.

Spring chinook angling in the lower Columbia River is projected to last through April 6 before the early season closes and sportsmen wait until a mid-May update of the salmon forecast.Washington and Oregon officials shared the projection Wednesday with the bistate Columbia River Recreational Advisor Group in Vancouver. The states will adopt the 2017 spring chinook fishing regulations at a hearing beginning at 1 p.m. a.m. Feb. 23 at the Clark Regional Waste Water District, 8000 N.E. 52nd Court.

You're doing better than me if you end up with enough springer to make it to the freezer, lately anyway.

No, not counting on that. hard to sustain those numbers. Half is still a lot of fish though. Hoping for that at least.

With proper.fish management we should have a million plus fish every year for the fall run.
