Fall is a great time to get out and fish with over half a million Fall Chinook entering the Columbia River. Some popular fall fishing areas for Upriver Bright Chinook can be found in the Hanford Reach area where 10’s of 1,000’s of fish will be running from the mouth of the Columbia up to Priest Rapids. There are areas above, below and right around the dam where great fishing can be found. White Bluff is a great spot in the early season and upstream is the Vernita Bridge area – a great fishing spot where lots of campers and RV folks park their RV’s and go back and forth to fish on the weekends. The Upriver Bright Chinook season runs approximately from early September to mid-October.
