2020 Columbia River Fishing Report:


Columbia River salmon bag limit includes two Chinook as of Oct. 1st


CLACKAMAS, Ore.— Oregon and Washington fishery managers are liberalizing the bag limit for adult salmon on the Columbia River; beginning Oct. 1, the daily adult bag limit of two salmon may include up to two Chinook.

The change applies to the ongoing recreational fishery open through Dec. 31 in the Columbia River from Buoy 10 to the Highway 395 Bridge near Pasco, WA. All coho retained downstream of the Hood River Bridge must be hatchery-origin. Columbia River guided fishing trips are among the best ways to catch these fish, but many anglers will capitalize on this opportunity as well.

All other regulations remain in effect including those specific to retention of jacks (5 per day allowed under permanent Oregon regulations), previously adopted steelhead retention closures and bag limits, and the use of barbless hooks only.
