July 3 Summer Season Tribal Fishery Announcement
Thursday July 3, 2018
Because current chinook run size and harvest data indicate the tribal fishery is getting close to the chinook harvest limit, the four Columbia River tribes have decided to put off a decision regarding any additional commercial gillnet fishing time until early next week.
The Zone 6 platform and hook-and-line fishery regulations remain unchanged and the intent is to ensure there are enough fish available to keep the platform and hook and line fishery open through the summer.
For information on other fisheries such as tributaries or downstream of Bonneville please consult the tribal fishery departments directly.
Note: This announcement is an informational document and does not constitute a fishery regulation. Individual tribes determine actual fishing regulations for their members. Copies of regulations are available from tribal fishery departments.
If you have any fishing enforcement problems or need assistance or information, day or night, contact the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fisheries Enforcement Office, 4270 Westcliff Drive, Hood River, Oregon. Phone: (541)-386-6363 or toll-free (800)-487-FISH (3474). Show pride in your Tribe’s treaty rights by carrying your tribal ID. Please consult your tribal Fisheries Department for additional details on tribal regulations. PLEASE WEAR YOUR LIFE JACKETS FOR SAFETY and avoid overloading your boats.
