Fighting for Our Right to Irrigate Our Farms and Caretake Our Natural Resources

    Coho Fishing Trip

Last Thursday,  August 30,  

I went fishing near Astoria on the Columbia River with my nephew.  The limit for Coho had been 2, but there were so many fish that they raised the limit to 4. 

There was no limit on how many you could have in your possession.  The water was thick with seals and sea lions eating the salmon.  

We caught several native Coho and had to turn them back, but the guide (my nephew) assured us that many of them would die after being released from the trama of the hook and fighting them into the boat.  

There must have been at least 1000 boats within a 3 mile radius.
