Oregon Fishing Spring
Salmon, Summer Salmon, Sturgeon, Steelhead & Fall Salmon
December 13, 2013
Hello Fellow Fishermen & Women,
Trips for Salmon, Sturgeon & Steelhead are available for all day trips.
forecast for 2014 is supposed to be
healthy fish returns of
Salmon, Steelhead, and plenty of
Sturgeon to go around.
2014 will bring
227,000 Spring Salmon into the Columbia River headed for waters
upstream of Bonneville Dam, it's a good
number, better than last years of 2013.
Summer Chinook pass Bonneville Dam between June and July, and
they are larger than Spring Chinook Salmon.
A lot of returning Fall Chinook in August
will be 4 year old fish this year. Upriver
Bright Fall Chinook returns in
2014 are expected to be similar according
to preliminary estimates from the ODFW.
The fall season begins Aug.
1, and includes the popular Buoy 10 fishery near Astoria and the
fall “upriver bright” season in the main stem
Columbia. Managers are estimating a total fall chinook return of
700,900 fish, including a record number of upriver
bright fish. If the total run returns as projected, it would be
the largest fall chinook run since 2004.
While those numbers are up over 2012, the
projected return of tule salmon is about the same as last year.
2014 will be a very good run size of somewhat the same as 2013.
Coho numbers also look to be up.
Based on predicted ocean abundances, managers expect coho returns to the
Columbia River to be significantly higher
than the 2013 return of 135,000 fish.
Sturgeon fishing for the year 2014 will be
catch and release only. Seven days a week, all year long.
