4/11/2006 - Columbia River Sport Fishing Closed
April 11, 2006
State fishery managers Tuesday called a halt to recreational salmon, steelhead, and shad fishing on the Columbia River effective midnight Thursday.
They took the action based on a sparse number of salmon reaching Bonneville Dam so far this spring.
The cause of the apparently small run is unknown, but sea lions seem to be getting most of the blame, as Ley Garnett reports.
