All Fishing Closed At Hoodsport Hatchery Zone

Fishing to close within the Hoodsport Hatchery Zone

Action: Closes all fishing.

Effective date: Nov. 9, 2020 through Nov. 30, 2020.

Species affected: All species.

Location: Hoodsport Hatchery Zone (Marine Area 12 waters within a 2,000-foot arc seaward of yellow buoys at the mouth of Finch Creek at Hoodsport Salmon Hatchery).

Reason for action: Fishery managers estimate that the 2020 fall chum run is about one-third of the way through normal run timing while the hatchery has only achieved 10 percent of broodstock needs. This rule is necessary to ensure that broodstock needs are met. 

Additional information: Please visit for up to date in-season fishing rule changes.
