2013 SPRING SEASON TRIBAL FISHERY ANNOUNCEMENT

Friday May 17, 2013

Today, the Columbia River Tribes made the following change to their spring fisheries:

Zone 6 platform and hook and line fishery and permit gillnet fisheries in the mainstem Columbia River

The Zone 6 Platform and Hook-and-Line Fisheries will close at 11:59 PM on Saturday, May 18 2013.

No C&S gillnet permits will be extended past Saturday May 18.

The reason is that the agreed to spring chinook harvest rate has been reached. At this time, mainstem fisheries are not-scheduled to re-open until June 16.
