The Columbia is closed to all salmon and steelhead sportfishing. The aluminum fleet of the week before is off the water. Some are feeling fortunate about a few salmon steaks in the freezer, some head a couple hundred miles west to squeeze the last several weeks of fall chinook season from their dwindling calendars.
Others are home, moaning about the closures, the year's disappointing tuna season, buoy 10's Quixotic results and low runs.
