Is the Yakima going to be open to the Spring run of chinook this year? I've been trying to find info on it and i havent had any luck. And if it is open does anybody know when it opens? Thanks for the help
WDFW has been planning not to open Yakima River for Spring Chinook. The return of 4s is expected to be low because of low flows in 2001 and poor jack returns. But the number of unique pit tag detections at Bonneville this year and the count at Prosser at at least 46 through April 8 strongly indicate a better than predicted run. We just don't know at what point WDFW will be convinced to change their minds.
i think that fishery begins in june and goes through july but im not sure. i saw lots of them in the naches a few years ago about mid july, even caught one while fishing for trout. good luck if you go!!
