The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife checked a spring chinook taken in the St. Helens area of the lower Columbia, and Washington Departmenf of Fish and Wildlife personnel saw one landed near Vancouver last weekend, according to WDFW biologist Joe Hymer in Vancouver.
Hymer said fishing could kick in at any time.
“We’re on about the same track as last year,” he said. “The current low, clear water conditions are much like last year at this time, and we saw some excellent fishing during the last week of February, for nice-size fish.”
Hymer reminds anglers that a generous limit of two adult springers is in effect through the end of the month.
