June 4, 2024 Spring Season Fishery Announcement

Tuesday, June 4, 2024

The Four Columbia River treaty fishing tribes made the following fishery change:

In a continued effort to balance the limited number of available chinook under the allowed harvest rate with the need to provide additional fishing opportunities, the tribes have modified the current the Zone 6 Platform and Hook and line fishery schedule by adding fishing time. An additional day will be added to the two remaining fishery openings of the spring season fisher. The new openings are:

  • 6AM Wednesday June 5 to 6PM Saturday June 8
  • Wednesday June 12 through 6:00 PM Saturday June 15.

The fishery will remain open for subsistence use only. For fishers using hook and line gear, only two poles per person are allowed. Other platform gears are allowed under standard gear regulations. Contact your tribe’s fish and wildlife department for details on gear rules.

Summer management period fisheries will be announced later.

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.
