Olympic National Park Closing Queets, Salmon, Upper Quinault to Steelheading

To protect declining populations of wild steelhead, Olympic National Park is closing the Queets, Salmon, and Quinault Rivers to sport fishing on November 27, 2023. Due to low forecasted returns, these conservation closures are necessary to eliminate any impacts to wild steelhead making their way to spawning areas inside and outside the park. Olympic Peninsula steelhead were recently petitioned for listing under the Endangered Species Act.
