Washington and Oregon today adopted three days of coho gillnetting in the Columbia River downstream of Woodland and four nights of commercial chinook fishing between Woodland and Beacon Rock.
The Columbia River Compact approved commercial fishing targeting on coho from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Friday and Monday downstream of Warrior Rock on Sauvie Island.
The net fleet can keep chinook, coho and pink salmon, plus shad. No sturgeon or chum salmon may be possessed. The nets must have a 6-inch-maximum mesh.
Robin Ehlke of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife said the projected catch is 5,000 coho and 1,500 chinook.
