Chinook Salmon In the Columbia River

From member station KUOW in Seattle, Jason Paur reports on the bountiful harvest of Chinook salmon in the Columbia River this spring. Native Americans took advantage of the largest Chinook run in 70 years, and thousands of sports fishers had their first opportunity to fish for Chinook since 1977. The season ended yesterday.
