Marine Area 1 (ilwaco) Opens For Two More Days Of Salmon Fishing

Marine Area 1 to open for 2 more days of salmon fishing during Labor Day weekend

Action: Marine Area 1 will be open Sunday, Sept. 2, and Monday, Sept. 3, for chinook and hatchery coho salmon fishing.

Effective date: Sept. 2 and 3, 2018.

Species affected: Chinook and coho salmon.

Location: Marine Area 1 (Ilwaco).

Reason for action: Sufficient quota is available for two more days of salmon fishing. Only a small amount of coho quota remained after the closure of Area 1 earlier in August; however a transfer of quota by the commercial troll fishery provided enough to reopen the recreational fishery.

Additional information: Daily limit of two salmon, release wild coho. The Columbia River Control Zone (Control Zone 1) is closed.

Marine Area 2 and 3 are open through Sept. 3 with a daily limit of two salmon, release wild coho.

Marine Area 4 remains closed to salmon fishing.

The Columbia River remains closed to chinook retention downstream of the Rocky Point-Tongue Point line, with the exception of the North Jetty, where Marine Area 1 rules apply while Area 1 is open for chinook retention.  Anglers with chinook in their possession may not fish in areas that are closed to chinook retention.

Information contact: Wendy Beeghley, Ocean Salmon Manager, (360) 249-1215.
