If you want a birds eye view of what it's like at the mouth of the Columbia River during the Bouy Ten salmon season just check out KAST 1370 AM on facebook where over 15,000+ people already have and that number is growing.
The video was supplied by the U.S. Coast Guard at the request of KAST News. The video was shot aboard a Coast Guard helecopter and patrol boats monitoring the hundreds of recreational boats dotting the river from the Megler Bridge to the river mouth.
Amongst the facebook comments are several mentions of the value sports fishing brings to the lower river during the popular season. See it HERE
