Bill, My mole at the O called to tell me that the Columbia is now open above Bonniville and this is going to print in the sports section of tomorrows paper. Is my info correct? Did you write the story?

Your O-mole is right, but that decision was made some time ago...In the Bonneville Pool, only the section from the towers to The Dalles Dam is open in Washington, but I think the bank is open in Oregon. from the Dalles, it's open up to the bordeer above McNary...
At least that's the way I understand it...

I double checked when I got to work...
That's correct (and has been since the action was taken in February)...

Above Bonneville to the towers: Bank fishing only on the Oregon side (cascade locks), not Washington and no boats either side except Drano and Wind.

Above towers to McNary...boats, bank, etc...all open until a quota is reached, but I don't think it's close...there are tribal net seasons, too...


From the towers

I spent the week in the Tri Cities and noticed on Tuesday and again today, a bunch of boats at the mouth of the Umitilla River. Appeared as though they were fishing for Chinook from the tackle I saw.
