COLUMBIA RIVER - Lower Columbia River anglers were put on notice last Thursday that their pursuit of fall Chinook salmon could be ended soon because of a flagging "upriver bright" run.

The Technical Advisory Committee last Tuesday downgraded its estimate for the 2007 "upriver bright" fall Chinook run from the 185,200 preseason forecast to a range of from 121,000 to 151,000 adult returns to the mouth of the Columbia. TAC is made up of federal, state and tribal fishery officials.
