Drano Lake To Close To All Fishing
October 15, 2018
Drano Lake to close to all fishing
Action: Closes Drano Lake to all fishing.
Effective date: Oct. 17, 2018 until further notice.
Species affected: All species
Location: In the waters downstream of markers on a point of land downstream and across from Little White Salmon National Fish Hatchery and upstream of the Highway 14 Bridge.
Reason for action: The return of fall chinook to Little White Salmon National Fish Hatchery is currently projected to be below the number needed to meet egg take goals for 2018. Closing the fishing season in Drano Lake will increase the number of hatchery fish available for broodstock and help ensure future hatchery returns.
