Fish Report for 9-29-2020
Is this some good 2021 Salmon news from the ODFW?
Noelie Achen ( Director of Operations )
Hopefully this resonates into a good season for us next year
Coho salmon are making a strong appearance in the Columbia River system this year and counts at Bonneville Dam are well above the ten-year average. Included in that group are the Lostine River Coho, reintroduced by the Nez Perce Tribe (NPT) and ODFW in 2017. The first two adult runs in 2018 and 2019 returned less than 200 fish to the Lostine River, but in 2020 Lostine River Coho are poised to make their best showing since reintroduction.
