Record Coho Runs in the Columbia

Buoyed by favorable ocean conditions, fall coho on the Columbia are back in record numbers this year. Already more than 200,000 fish have passed over Bonneville, with thousands more returning to Lower Columbia tributaries. Coho in the Snake are extinct however with reintroduction efforts underway, lets hope good returns give colonizing salmon a leg up.
