For, I'm Eric Granstrom. I have a few notes to pass along from the Department of Fish and Wildlife today. First, the popular Buoy 10 salmon fishery at the mouth of the Columbia will reopen for Coho fishing today. The Department closed the area for a couple weeks to protect the lower Columbia River "tule" Chinook salmon, which are threatened under the Endangered Species Act. Fish managers are confident that enough fish have passed over Bonneville Dam to help escapement, thus leading to the reopening of Buoy 10. Now, this is for Coho-only, all Chinook are to be released. Of the salmon species, I think Coho's are my favorite to catch. Yeah, it's great to get a big King on the line, but when a Silver hits and peels line and cartwheels in the air, there's nothing better. On another note from Fish and Wildlife, you need to submit your Puget Sound Dungeness crab report card by October 1st or be subject to a $10 penalty. They need those reports whether you caught any crab or not. The easiest way to report is online at Managers use this information to open a winter fishery. Until next time, Good Fishing!
