Dungeness River Close To Fishing Effective October 26th, 2018s
A portion of the Dungeness River closes to fishing until coho abundance improves
Action: Closes all fishing for a portion of the Dungeness River.
Effective date: October 26, 2018 until further notice.
Species affected: All species.
Location: Dungeness River from the mouth to the Gray Wolf River at the Dungeness Forks Campground.
Reason for action: Currently the number of coho salmon that have returned to the Dungeness River is below pre-season expectations. To help ensure escapement needs are met, the river will close to angling until further notice.
Additional information: Fishery co-managers will continue to monitor escapement. Once there is greater certainty that broodstock needs and spawning objectives will be met, the fishery will re-opened.
