Coho tangle-net fishing coming to lower Columbia

The Columbia River Compact on Thursday approved eight days of fishing downstream of Warrior Rock on Sauvie Island with 3.75-inch-mesh nets and recovery boxes. The nets can not be in the water longer than 30 minutes at a time. Tangle nets are smaller mesh nets than used traditionally. They are intended to catch fish by tangling in the teeth or jaw, rather than in the fragile gills. Wild fish can be placed in the recovery boxes, then released. [email protected] 11:54
