The beat goes on.

To protect fish during the ongoing severe drought conditions, an emergency closure of recreational fishing goes into effect today on most rivers and streams within Olympic National Park.

Current conditions have made Pacific salmon, steelhead and bulltrout exceptionally vulnerable because of low stream flows and high water temperatures.

The following river systems within Olympic National Park will close to all recreational fishing on Aug. 10: Bogachiel, South Fork Calawah, Sol Duc, North Fork Sol Duc, Dickey, Queets, Salmon, Quinault, and North Fork Skokomish Rivers (including East and North Forks) and their tributaries and Cedar, Goodman, Kalaloch, and Mosquito Creeks in the Pacific coastal area.
