Fishery announcements and other notices of interest to Columbia River Indian fishers.
May 9, 2019
The spring snowmelt (or freshet) causes rising high-water levels in the Columbia River and its tributaries each year. CRITFC monitors river conditions and forecasts during the year. Lower Columbia River flow came early this year. The normal peak should be May 20-31. The primary peak was April 25 or 30 days earlier than normal – driven by natural climate variability (El Niño events) and long-term climate change. A secondary peak will occur by June 1.
