Dungeness River opens to sport fishing for hatchery coho Oct. 16

Action: The river will be open from the mouth to the hatchery intake pipe at river mile 11.3.

Effective date: Oct. 16 through Nov. 27, 2016.

Species affected:  Hatchery coho salmon returning to the Dungeness River. 

Location:  The Dungeness River downstream of the hatchery intake pipe.

Other information: Daily limit 4 hatchery coho only (marked with an adipose fin clip); minimum size 12 inches; release all wild (unclipped) coho and all other salmon.
