Good piece. From the article:

"The number of sea lions and the number of salmon they’ve eaten this year in the Bonneville Dam tailrace is more than double the twelve-year average, according to a May 12 status report by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Sea lions, or pinnipeds, have caused havoc this year, both at the dam where they pick off salmon and other fish stalled in the tailrace, and lower in the river where commercial and recreational fishing has been impacted, as well as in Astoria where sea lions have taken over docks.
At the dam, their presence has broken records for the number of sea lions observed in one day and for the number of chinook salmon eaten over the season."

I have no doubt the effect of steelhead, wild Spring Chinook and sturgeon on the Willamette are seeing similar increases.
