HOH RIVER CLOSES TO ALL FISHING EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 16TH

posted by Mike on 10/14/2017

Hoh River to close Oct. 16 due to low river flows impeding salmon migration

Action:  Closes the Hoh and South Fork Hoh Rivers outside of Olympic National Park to all fishing.

Effective date:   Oct. 16, 2017 until further notice.

Species affected:  All species. 

Location:  The Hoh River System

Reason for action: Unusually low river flows in recent weeks have created difficult migrating conditions for returning salmon, impeding their movement upstream. The closure is intended to protect these fish until flow conditions change sufficiently to enable normal salmon migration and the attainment of escapement goals.

These rivers will re-open when flows have normalized sufficiently to allow consistent, unimpeded migration.

Further Information:  The Hoh Tribe is closing fisheries until river flows improve and Olympic National Park is closing waters within the park boundaries.

PUTGET SOUND SQUIDDING OFF TO A GOOD START

posted by Mike on 10/13/2017

If you are wanting to get out and do something, you might want to try squidding off one of the many Puget Sound's public piers. So far the squidding is off to a good start and it looks as if we will once again see another outstanding season.

The squid fishing has been good off most of Puget Sounds public piers for quite some time. The early season squid have been a little on the small side but have been quite plentiful.

Ted's has a good selection of squid jigs in stock at the present time.

WDFW CLOSING QUILLAYUTE RIVER AND MOST TRIBUTARIES - EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 16TH

posted by Mike on 10/13/2017

Quillayute River and most tributaries

STURGEON RETENTION BELOW BONNEVILLE DAM OCTOBER 21ST & OCTOBER 26TH

posted by Mike on 10/13/2017

Sturgeon retention allowed for 2 days on
Columbia River below Bonneville Dam

Action:  Allows retention of white sturgeon for two days on the Columbia River below Bonneville Dam.

Effective Dates:  Oct. 21 and Oct. 26, 2017.

Species affected:  White sturgeon.

Locations:  On the mainstem Columbia River, from the Wauna power lines (40 miles from the mouth of the Columbia) upstream to Bonneville Dam

Other information: Anglers will have a daily retention limit of one fish measuring 44 to 50 inches from its snout to the fork in its tail. An annual limit of two white sturgeon, regardless of where they are caught, will also be in effect.

The mainstem Columbia River remains open for catch-and-release sturgeon fishing.

Information Contact: Region 5, Olaf Langness; 360-696-6741.

SECTIONS OF SNAKE RIVER TO OPEN FOR STEELHEAD RETENTION ON OCTOBER 15TH

posted by Mike on 10/11/2017

Sections of Snake River to open Oct. 15 to steelhead
retention;
catch limit to increase on tributaries

OLYMPIA – Beginning Oct. 15, anglers can keep two hatchery steelhead daily in sections of the Snake River and some streams in southeast Washington, state fish managers said today. 

The fishing rule changes announced by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) affect the following areas: 

  • Snake River from the Washington-Idaho state line at Clarkston upstream to the Couse Creek boat ramp will open Oct. 15 for daily retention of two hatchery steelhead (marked with a clipped adipose fin) of less than 28 inches in length.
  • Snake River from Couse Creek to the Idaho-Oregon state line will open Oct. 15 for daily retention of two hatchery steelhead of any size.
  • On the Grand Ronde and Tucannon rivers (Snake River tributaries) and on the Walla Walla and Touchet rivers (Columbia River tributaries), the daily catch limit will increase on Oct. 15 from one hatchery steelhead to two.

Anglers should be aware that the section of the Snake River from the mouth near the Tri-Cities to the Washington-Idaho state line at Clarkston will not open for steelhead retention. Steelhead fishing in this section will remain open only for catch-and-release fishing, said Chris Donley, WDFW eastern region fish program manager. 

Anglers fishing for steelhead in the Snake and Columbia rivers have been allowed to retain only one steelhead or limited to catch-and-release fishing due to low returns of adult steelhead. These restrictions were designed to protect both A-run steelhead (fish smaller than 28 inches) and B-run steelhead (those 28 inches and larger) destined for the Columbia and Snake River basins.

However, A-run steelhead, both wild and hatchery-origin adults, have returned in adequate numbers to allow opening portions of the Snake River to harvest and increasing catch limits on some tributaries, Donley said.

As forecasted, the B-run steelhead are returning at exceptionally low rates, which is why other sections of the Columbia and Snake rivers will remain closed to harvest of steelhead in the coming months, Donley said. WDFW is requiring anglers to release steelhead that are 28-inches or larger in some areas to protect B-run fish. 

"These measures will help ensure that sufficient numbers of wild and hatchery fish return to their natal streams," Donley said. "But we'll continue to monitor the steelhead run over the coming months, and either curtail the harvest of steelhead if needed, or provide more harvest opportunity if possible."

Additional details of these fisheries are available on WDFW's website at https://fortress.wa.gov/dfw/erules/efishrules/

SAMISH RIVER CLOSES TO ALL FISHING EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 10TH

posted by Mike on 10/09/2017

WDFW to close the lower Samish River to all fishing

Action: Close part of the Samish River to all fishing.

Effective dates: Oct. 10, 2017, until further notice

Species affected: All species.

Location: From the mouth (Bayview–Edison Road) to I-5 Bridge.

Reasons for action: The return of fall chinook to the Samish Hatchery is projected to be below the number needed to meet egg take goals. Closing the fishing season in the lower Samish River will increase the number of hatchery fish available for broodstock and ensure future hatchery returns.

Other information: The season will be reopened when egg take needs are projected to be met, or when the chinook return is over. Please refer to http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations/ for further information on seasons.

MANY AREAS OF PUGET SOUND REOPEN FOR CRAB ON OCTOBER 7TH

posted by Mike on 10/03/2017

Several areas of Puget Sound reopen Oct. 7
for late-season recreational crab fishing

OLYMPIA – Several marine areas of Puget Sound will reopen for recreational crab fishing on Oct. 7, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) announced today.

The openings were approved by fishery managers after summer catch assessments by WDFW indicated additional crab are available for harvest during the late season, said Don Velasquez, shellfish manager for the department.

Waters reopening to sport crabbing Oct. 7 at 8 a.m. include marine areas 4 (Neah Bay, east of the Bonilla-Tatoosh line), 5 (Sekiu), 6 (eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca), 7 (San Juan Islands), 8-1 (Deception Pass, Hope Island, and Skagit Bay), 8-2 (Port Susan and Port Gardiner), and 9 (Admiralty Inlet), except for waters south of a line from Olele Point to Foulweather Bluff.

In each area, crabbing will be allowed seven days a week through Dec. 31.

Sport crabbing will not reopen in marine areas 10 (Seattle Bremerton), 11 (Vashon Island), 12 (Hood Canal), and 13 (South Puget Sound).

The daily limit in Puget Sound is five Dungeness crab, males only, in hard shell condition with a minimum carapace width of 6 ¼ inches.  Crabbers may also catch six red rock crab of either sex per day with a minimum carapace width of 5 inches.  Additional information is available on WDFWs website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/crab/

All Dungeness crab caught in the late-season recreational fishery must be recorded immediately on winter catch record cards, which are valid through Dec. 31.  Winter catch record cards are free to those with crab endorsements and are available at license vendors across the state.

Winter catch reports are due to WDFW by Feb.1, 2018.  For more information on catch record cards, visit WDFW's website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/crab/crc.html

FIRST FALL RAZOR CLAM DIG IS A GO FOR OCTOBER 6TH & 7TH

posted by Mike on 10/03/2017

First razor clam dig of season set Oct. 6-7

OLYMPIA – The first razor clam dig of the fall season will get underway Oct. 6-7 at four ocean beaches.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has approved the dig on evening tides at Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks after marine toxin tests showed that clams on those beaches are safe to eat. No digging will be allowed on any beach before noon.

The upcoming dig is approved on the following beaches, dates and evening low tides:

  • Oct. 6, Friday, 7:49 p.m.; -0.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Mocrocks
  • Oct. 7, Saturday, 8:33 p.m.; -0.7 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Mocrocks

Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager, recommends that diggers hit the beach about an hour or two before low tide for the best results.

Before receiving the test results, Ayres said he had received a number of calls from diggers about an erroneous newspaper story that suggested that ocean beaches would remain closed to digging.

"A map on the Washington Department of Health's website indicates that beaches are closed to razor clam digging up until they are cleared to open by the test results," Ayres said. "We're pleased that we are able to move ahead with this opening as scheduled."

A recent statement in a story about Pierce County's shellfish ban might have caused some confusion among razor clam diggers. While it's true that the Washington coast has been closed to clam digging, that closure could be superseded by favorable results from a marine toxin test, due as early as Oct. 3. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will post the results of that test at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/current.html.

WDFW has tentatively scheduled another dig for Nov. 2-5, pending results of future toxin tests. More information on planned digs can be found on WDFW's razor clam webpage at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/current.html.

All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2017-18 fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license, are available on WDFW's website at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov and from license vendors around the state.

Under state law, diggers at open beaches can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig. Each digger's clams must be kept in a separate container.

Ayres noted that throughout the 2017-18 razor clam season, a research team from the University of Maryland will be out on the beaches seeking volunteers to participate in a survey about razor clam consumption and harvesting practices. For more information, contact Lynn Grattan at 877-668-4559 or LGrattan@som.umaryland.edu.

 

COWLITZ, GREEN & NORTH FORK TOUTLE RIVERS CLOSING TO CHINOOK FISHING

posted by Mike on 09/30/2017

Cowlitz, Green, North Fork Toutle rivers
will close to chinook salmon fishing

VANCOUVER, Wash. – Starting Oct. 2, anglers will be required to release any chinook salmon they intercept on the Cowlitz, Green and North Fork Toutle rivers due to low returns of hatchery chinook.

State fishery managers at the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) said the closures are necessary to ensure that enough fall chinook return to those rivers to support hatchery production during the coming year.

All three rivers will remain open to retention of other fish species, as listed in the 2017 Sport Fishing Rules.

"This was a tough decision for fishery managers, but we can't ignore the lagging chinook returns," said Dan Rawding, acting WDFW regional fish manager. "We have to think about producing fish for next year too."

According to the pre-season forecast, 3,900 hatchery fall chinook were expected to cross Barrier Dam this year, with a goal of collecting 1,900 fish for hatchery broodstock. So far, only 700 chinook have returned to the river, and Rawding said fish managers are now hoping to get 1,400 back to the hatchery.

The Cowlitz River remains open to fishing for coho salmon, summer steelhead, and sea-run cutthroat trout.

On the Green River, only 400 chinook have been collected this year out of an expected return of 1,000 hatchery fish. The broodstock goal is 800 fish at the hatchery, which produces chinook returning to the Green and North Toutle rivers.

Two other large Columbia River tributaries – the Kalama and the Washougal – will remain open to fishing for chinook salmon. There, too, chinook returns are lower than expected, but fishery managers still expect to meet hatchery broodstock goals on those rivers, Rawding said.

Rawding said WDFW will continue to monitor salmon returns in area rivers, and will consider reopening rivers to chinook fishing if returns improve in the coming weeks.

More information about these rule changes can be found on WDFW's website at https://fortress.wa.gov/dfw/erules/efishrules/

WALLACE RIVER REOPENS TO FISHING

posted by Mike on 09/30/2017

Wallace River to reopen to fishing for coho, gamefish

Action: Open the Wallace River to fishing.

Effective dates: Sept. 30 through Nov. 30, 2017. 

Rules: 

From the mouth (farthest downstream railroad bridge) to 200 feet upstream of the water intake for the salmon hatchery.

  • Night closure and anti-snagging rule in effect.
  • Fishing from a floating device prohibited.
  • Salmon: Limit of 3 coho only (release chinook, pink, and chum). 
  • Dolly varden/bull trout: Minimum size 20 inches, may be retained as part of the trout daily limit.
  • Other trout: Minimum size 14 inches, daily limit 2.  
  • Other gamefish: Statewide minimum size/daily limit.

From 200 feet upstream of the water intake for the salmon hatchery upstream to Wallace Falls, opens to fishing Nov. 1, as described in the 2017/2018 Sport Fishing Rules Pamphlet.

Species affected: Coho salmon, gamefish.

Closure locations: The Wallace River from the mouth upstream to Wallace Falls.

Reason for action:  The river was closed Sept. 16 to ensure that chinook broodstock goals were met at the Wallace Hatchery. Chinook broodstock goals have now been met.   

Additional Information: Pink salmon abundance remains below escapement goals, so pink salmon must be released.  Under statewide general rules there is no fishing within 400 feet downstream of the hatchery weir. To insure future generations of fish, avoid stepping on redds (spawning nests) while fishing.

LAKE WASHINGTON COHO REPORT

posted by Mike on 09/22/2017

We have seen some good Coho fishing from Lake Washing since it opened this past Saturday. The greatest number of anglers that we have spoke with have had good results. I would have to say better than half of the anglers we have spoke with have being getting their 4 fish limit. The fish we are seeing have been in the 4 - 6 pound range with an occasional larger.

As far as tackle goes we have seen folks getting them on everything accross the board. One of our regular guys has done quite well fishing a chrome dodger with a pink mini squid fished behind it. He also mentioned that a coupel of guys jigging Buzz Bombs were doing quite well also.

We have not heard of the tribes fishing the lake yet, but that could occur at any time.

SNOHOMISH SYSTEM CLOSES FOR PINK SALMON EFFECTIVE FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 22ND

posted by Mike on 09/22/2017

September 21, 2017

Snohomish, Skykomish and Snoqualmie rivers
to close to pink salmon fishing

Action: Closes the Snohomish River, including the Skykomish and Snoqualmie rivers, to the retention of pink salmon.

Effective Date: Sept. 22, 2017, until further notice.

Species affected: Pink salmon.

Reason for action: The rule is necessary to protect returning pink runs to the Snohomish River Watershed. In-season run-size assessments conducted by state and tribal co-managers indicate that pink run sizes are below the escapement goal in the Snohomish basin.

Other information: The Skykomish and Snoqualmie rivers are tributaries to the Snohomish River and will also close to the retention of pink salmon. The rivers will still be open to fishing for other species of salmon, with a daily limit of three coho. The Wallace River, another tributary to the Snohomish River, remains closed to all fishing. Check the 2017-18 Fishing Rules Pamphlet for specific regulations.

LAKE WASHINGTON COHO OPENS SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 16TH, 2017

posted by Mike on 09/15/2017

Coho fishing on Lake Washington will open up this Saturday Septermber 16th, 2017 and will run through October 31st. The lake will be open north of the Hwy 530 Bridge and east of the Mountlake Bridge. Anglers will have a 4 Coho limit with a 12 inch min. size and can be either wild or of hatchery origin.

As of the 13th there have been 6,416 Coho counted through the locks and WDFW is expecting a run of 20,378. So, we are about 1/3 of the way into the migration. With that number of fish already into the lake we should have some reasonable fishing. The earlier ruturning fish are also more willing biters than those that return later.

There are many techiniques that take these fish and not a single one seems to be more productive than another. These are very fickle biters and one technique that was productive one minute is not the next. So make sure to have a number of offerings and a range of colors to intice a bite.

Plugs such as Brads wigglers and Yakima Bait Mag Lips have been fairly consistant producers. Colors such as Flour. Red, Flour Red Herringbone or Fire Tigers are a go to.

Fish are generally close to the surface at first light and it can be quite productive just to flat line your offerings. As the day goes on you will have to get down deeper as the light increases.

 


 

WDFW HOSTING NATIONAL HUNTING & FISHING DAY SEPTEMBER 23RD, 2017

posted by Mike on 09/15/2017

Olympia – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is hosting a National Hunting and Fishing Day celebration on Sept. 23 in Snohomish, Washington.

The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Camp Pigott, 24225 Woods Creek Road.

"This family oriented event is a great way to introduce youth and newcomers to target shooting, hunting and fishing," said David Whipple, WDFW hunter education division manager. "It's also an opportunity to recognize that hunters and anglers are and will continue to be among the most active supporters of wildlife management and conservation."

Youth 17 years of age and under who attend the event with an accompanying adult can shoot WDFW firearms, archery equipment and air rifles. Agency staff, WDFW hunter education instructors and Master Hunters, as well as Boy Scout merit badge counselors will be on hand to teach shooting safety and provide instruction and guidance.

For those interested in learning to fish, participants can catch and keep trout as well as learn to cast a line with spinning reels. "There are few things better than fishing to instill appreciation and respect for nature – and maybe also a bit of patience," said Bruce Bolding, WDFW warmwater fish program manager.

The event also features:

  • Lunch provided for the first 500 youth attendees and accompanying adults.
  • Participation bags with shooting safety gear for the first 500 youth attendees.
  • Door prize drawings.
  • Opportunities to learn how to hunt turkey, tie basic knots, and gain other outdoor skills.
  • Opportunities to make plaster casts of animal tracks and Japanese-style (Gyotaku) fish prints.
  • Displays and information from numerous conservation organizations.

The free event is hosted by WDFW's Hunter Education Division and Volunteer Program. It is sponsored by WDFW, hunter education instructors, Master Hunters, the Washington Hunter Education Instructor's Association (WHEIA), Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians, Stonerose, Volterra Restaurants and Chef/Owner Don Curtis, Safari Club International (NW Chapter), the Mule Deer Foundation, the National Wild Turkey Federation, Trout Unlimited (Monroe Chapter), WA. Friends of the NRA (Grant), WA. Grand Lodge Medical Team, WA. Ornamental Game Bird Breeders, Puget Sound Knappers, the Chief Seattle Council, Boy Scouts of America Shooting Sports Committee, and Camp Pigott.

National Hunting and Fishing Day, formalized by Congress in 1971, was created by the National Shooting Sports Foundation to celebrate the conservation successes of hunters and anglers.

Whipple noted that the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration and Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration acts–which instituted federal excise taxes on hunting and fishing gear–have been and continue to be a major source of funding for conservation and management of game and non-game species and their habitats.

Governor Inslee recently recognized these benefits and others in his "Hunting and Fishing Day" proclamation.

MARINE AREA 9 (SEATTLE & BREMERTON) SALMON FISHING

posted by Mike on 09/13/2017

This seasons coho fishery in Marine Area 10 has been quite good. We have been seeing some very good fishing for the past week and a half. The area is open for retention on hatchery coho as well as pink salmon.

The fishing has been good on the Edmonds side with most anglers fishing just below the Area 9/10 line down to the oil docks and south toward Boeing Creek.

We have been seeing a mix of smaller delayed release resident coho in the 3 - 5 pound range as well as some ocean fish  with most in the 7 - 9 pound range with an odd fish to 15 pounds. There are still a few pinks  being caught in the 4 - 6 pound range with an odd fish to 10 pounds. There are still a few Chinook being caught upwards of the mid twenties. All Chinook must be released.

Coho have been in the 25 - 45 foot zones fist thing in the morning and dropping down into deeper waters later in the morning where the 70 - 90 foot zones have been holding the fish.

We should see good fishing through the end of the month.

WALLACE RIVER TO CLOSE TO ANGLING

posted by Mike on 09/13/2017

Wallace River to close to fishing

Action: Close the Wallace River from the mouth to Wallace Falls to all fishing.

Effective dates: Sept. 16 through Nov. 30, 2017

Species affected: All fish species.

Location: The Wallace River from the mouth upstream to Wallace Falls.

Reason for action: Currently the Wallace River is experiencing very low flows and salmon are not moving upstream into the hatchery.

Additional Information: Once conditions improve and chinook and coho hatchery broodstock goals are assured, the river may reopen to fishing.

Information contact: WDFW Region 4 Mill Creek Office, (425) 775-1311

NOOKSACK RIVER TO CLOSE TO PINK SALMON FISHING

posted by Mike on 09/13/2017

Nooksack River to close to pink salmon fishing

Action: Closes the mainstem Nooksack River to the retention of pink salmon effective Sept. 15. The North and South Forks of the Nooksack River will not open for pink salmon retention as scheduled Oct. 1.

Effective Date: Sept. 15, 2017, until further notice.

Species affected: Pink salmon.

Reason for action: The rule is necessary to protect returning pink runs to the Nooksack River Watershed (permanent regulations are already in place requiring release of wild chinook salmon). In-season run-size assessments conducted by state and tribal co-managers indicate that the run-size is below the escapement goal for pink salmon in the Nooksack River.

Other information: Sections of the North and South forks of the Nooksack River will open to fishing for other species of salmon as scheduled Oct. 1. Check the 2017-18 Fishing Rules Pamphlet for specific regulations.
