Action: Beginning Nov. 5, anglers may again catch and retain coho salmon and steelhead on the mainstem Columbia downstream of the Highway 395 Bridge near Pasco, Washington.

Species affected: Coho and steelhead

Effective dates: Nov. 5 through Dec. 31, 2016.

Location: Mainstem Columbia from Buoy 10 upstream to the Highway 395 Bridge.

Reason for action: Wild Snake River fall chinook salmon have cleared the Columbia River, and there are more coho and hatchery steelhead available for harvest. Fishing for salmon and steelhead has been closed since Oct. 22 in those waters to protect Snake River fall chinook, which are listed as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act.

Additional information: The daily limit is two salmonids, only one of which may be a hatchery steelhead. The fishery will remain closed from Beacon Rock to Bonneville Dam.
