Fall Chinook Run Breaking Records

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

The fall chinook salmon run on the Columbia River is the largest in the past 75 years with up to 835,000 adult chinook and more than 63,000 fish travelling up the river’s Bonneville Dam fish ladder on a single day.


The run is the largest since the construction of the dam and is likely to reach one million before it is done, letting officials extend the fishing season on the Lower Columbia River.
