Thursday, July 17, 2014 - Mason County Journal - Page B-5 STAFF REPORT news@masoncounty, com Anglers will be able to retain eight salmon and up to six adult sockeye salmon in the main stem of the Columbia River above Priest Rapids Dam. Effective dates and locations: Main stem of the Columbia River - (1) From U.S. Highway 395 Bridge at Pasco to Priest Rapids Dam, July 15 - July 31, 2014. (2) From Priest Rapids Dam to Wanapum Dam, July 11 - Aug. 31, 2014. (3) From Wanapum Dam to Wells Dam, July 11 - Oct. 15, 2014. (4) From Wells Dam to state Route 173 Bridge in Brewster, July 16 - Aug. 31, 2014. (5) From state Route 173 Bridge in Brewster to Chief Joseph Dam, July 11 - Oct. 15, 2014 Sockeye salmon are the only species affected. The Sockeye salmon returns above Priest Rapids Dam are predicted to be far in excess of needs for wild fish escapement to the spawning grounds and the population is not listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The minimum size is 12 inches. Daily limit for each angler is eight salmon, up to two may be adult hatchery chinook and up to six may be sockeye. An- glers must release coho and wild adult chinook. All sockeye with a colored anchor (floy) tag attached must be released. All anglers must possess a valid fishing license and a Columbia River Salmon/Steelhead Endorse- ment to participate in this fishery. Revenue from the endorsement supports salmon or steelhead sea- sons on many rivers in the Columbia River system, including enforcing fishery regulations and moni- toring the upper Columbia River steelhead fish- eries. The endorsement has generated more than $1 million annually for WDFW to maintain and increase fishing opportunities throughout the Co- lumbia River Basin. For more information, contact Travis Maitland, District 7 fish biologist, Wenatchee, 509-665-3337; Ryan Fortier, District 6 fish biologist, Twisp 509- 997-0316; Jeff Korth, Region Two fish program manager, Ephrata, 509-754-4624, ext. 224; John Easterbrooks, Region 3 fish program manager, Ya- kima, 509-457-9330.
