The record sockeye run predicted for the Columbia River seems to be coming to fruition. On Sunday, a record 38,756 sockeye were counted at Bonneville Dam, smashing the previous record of 30,690 fish on June 24, 2010.

A record 462,000 sockeye are forecast to pass through the mouth of the Columbia this year. Of those, 431,300 fish are expected to be headed to the Okanogan River.
