Columbia River fishing report 3/26/2018

Spring Chinook season are finally here!  The most anticipated season of the year has finally arrived and fish are starting to show in good numbers. The Spring Chinook fishery is one of our longest seasons, lasting from late March through mid May!  We are so very fortunate to have the best eating salmon in the world right here in our back yard! There are no longer commercial seasons on Spring Chinook so getting your hands on one at a super market is near impossible.  The last price on springer’s was $52.00 a pound in specialty seafood markets. That’s just how good these fish are!  Our Columbia River season only goes through April 7th, but there are several other rivers to catch good numbers of fish through May.  Time to wake from winter hibernation and get after some fish!
