With mainstem salmon fishing largely over for the year, anglers will put on their crabbing gear, in search of holiday crustaceans. coho salmon fishing at the mouth of the klickitat river remains a fairly good option, weather dependent however, which is looking quite volatile this week.

Creel reports are becoming pretty sparse.Here's the information that was gathered from last week:

SALMON, STEELHEAD AND SHAD

The salmonid creel program on the lower Columbia has ended for the year and will resume February of 2022.

Bonneville Pool (Bonneville Dam upstream to The Dalles Dam):

Weekly checking showed three adult Chinook, 25 adult coho, and 8 jack coho kept, and one adult coho released for 35 boats (73 anglers).

The Dalles Pool (The Dalles Dam upstream to John Day Dam):

Weekly checking showed no catch for one boat (two anglers).

As you can clearly see, the Klickitat fishery remains the last man standing.

Crabbing in the estuary becomes quite popular this time of year, when the weather allows. Tides have been quite favorable for lower river sport crabbers, the wind and weather however have been less than ideal. The crabbing however when folks have been getting out, has been very good. That won't be changing anytime soon.
