September is when hatchery steelhead catch-and-keep fishing really picks up on the Snake River, where steelhead numbers passing the dams increase and so does angler effort and success.
In addition, fishing for hatchery-marked fall chinook salmon starts Aug. 30 and runs through Oct. 31 in the Snake River. A significant portion of the 2014 Columbia River forecasted return of 919,000 upriver bright chinook adults is expected to return to the Snake River. See all the rules for this fishery here.
