Fishing on most WA coastal rivers and tributaries for all game fish to close 10/8

It’s October 6th, and here in Seattle, the forecast is for continued warm weather and no rain for the next week.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has announced that fishing for salmon and all game fish is closing on most Washington coastal rivers and tributaries beginning Saturday, Oct. 8, until further notice.

“Historic low flows this summer are creating conditions that limit fish movements and result in higher-than-expected harvest rates,” said James Losee, WDFW Region 6 fish program manager. “These areas are closing to fishing until river conditions improve and salmon are able to reach the spawning grounds in adequate numbers.”
