Fall Chinook Season Opens On Lower Columbia

The fall Chinook fishing season opens Thursday on the lower Columbia River and is scheduled to run through September 1.

And all indicators point to a good year.

The Columbian newspaper reports that a big fall Chinook run of 678,000 is expected between now and November.

That means the region could see a big influx of fishermen. Hundreds of boats are expected in the area, peaking mid-month.
