VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - The state of Washington has extended the summer Chinook fishing season through July 31.
The Columbian newspaper reports (https://is.gd/O5t6N1 ) the season was supposed to start closing down this week, but officials have decided to extend it with new limits.
The new rules say people can catch two salmon or two steelhead, but only one Chinook. State officials say most of the allowed salmon have already been caught, but holiday anglers may have some luck.
No total numbers are available yet from the coastal salmon season off the southern Washington and northern Oregon coasts, but officials say fishing has been good.
