NOOKSACK RIVER TO CLOSE FOR CHUM SALMON RETENTION

posted by Mike on 12/02/2017

Nooksack River to close for chum retention

Action: Close the mainstem Nooksack River to chum retention.

Species affected:  Chum

Location: The Nooksack River from the Lummi Indian Reservation boundary to the confluence of the North and South Forks.

Effective dates: Dec. 3 through Dec. 31, 2017

Reasons for action:  Chum returns to the Nooksack River and to Kendall Hatchery are not meeting escapement goals. The closure is necessary to ensure natural escapement and hatchery broodstock goals are met.

Other information: In order to achieve our shared conservation goals, the Nooksack Tribe and Lummi Nation are closing their chum fisheries on the Nooksack River as well. The North Fork Nooksack closes effective Dec. 1 to chum retention per permanent rules. Gamefish fisheries will remain open as listed in the Sport Fishing Rules 2017/2018 pamphlet edition, FISHING IN WASHINGTON

DECEMBER IS HERE - START OF THE WINTER STEELHEAD SEASON

posted by Mike on 12/01/2017

Though steelheading isn't what it used to be, there are still some opportunities for thse that are willing to put in some time on a few of the local rivers or to travel to SW Washington or the coast.

Locally, the best chance of hooking up with a steelhead is to fish the Snohomish system, with the Skykomish and the Wallace Rivers producing the best chance at a fish. To a lesser extent the Snoqualimie River will also produce a few hatchery steelhead. These are the only rivers here in North Puget Sound that will give you a chance of catching a hatchery steelhead. Next year we should see some of our areas streams come back on line with some hatchery fish.

Prior to the past high water event we did see a few winter steelhead being caught in the Reiter Ponds section of the Sky as well as an odd fish on the Wallace. However, since the high water we have seen very few fish being caught. Hopefully, we sould see some improvement in the upcoming couple of weeks. Don't expect a real gang buster season as the plant numbers have not been extremely high, nor has been the % of returns upon those plants. Ocean survival has not been very good due to quite a number of factors.

Make sure to read your regulations very carefully this year as there are quite changes that have occured this season.

SALMON SEASON EXTENDED ON SOL DUC RIVER

posted by Mike on 11/30/2017

Salmon season on the Sol Duc River extended
through Dec. 15
to allow retention of hatchery coho

Action:  Extends the salmon season to allow harvest of hatchery coho on the Sol Duc River. The season was scheduled to end Nov. 30.

Effective date:  Dec.1 through Dec.15, 2017.

Species affected:  Salmon. 

Location:  The Sol Duc River downstream of the hatchery.

Reason for action: Coho broodstock needs at the Sol Duc Hatchery have been met, and surplus hatchery (adipose fin-clipped) coho remain in the Sol Duc River below the hatchery.    

Additional Information: The daily limit for salmon during this period will be two hatchery coho (marked with a clipped adipose fin) only; minimum size 14 inches; release all chinook and wild coho.

On Dec.16, the regulations for the Sol Duc River will revert to those listed in the 2017-18 "Washington Sport Fishing Rules" pamphlet.

Information contact: WDFW Region 6 Office, (360) 249-4628.

NISQUALLY RIVER TO REMAIN CLOSED

posted by Mike on 11/30/2017

Nisqually River will not open to fishing for gamefish Dec. 1

Action: The Nisqually River will remain closed to all fishing and will not open Dec. 1 to fishing for gamefish as scheduled.

Effective dates: D ec. 1, 2017, until further notice.

Species affected:  All species.

Location: Nisqually River (Pierce and Thurston counties) from the mouth to military tank crossing bridge (located one mile upstream of mouth of Muck Creek). 

Reason for action: Based on current run estimates, WDFW and tribal co-managers agree that winter chum salmon returns will fall short of conservation goals. Keeping the river closed to all fishing will increase the number of chum returning to spawn and help ensure future returns.

Other information: In order to achieve our shared conservation goals, the Nisqually Tribe is closing their fisheries on the Nisqually River as well.

Have a very good Thanksgiving with your family and friends.

FOUR DAYS OF RAZOR CLAM DIGGING STARTING DECEMBER 1ST

posted by Mike on 11/22/2017

Four-day razor clam dig begins Dec. 1

OLYMPIA – Razor clam diggers will have the opportunity to fill their limits during a four-day dig beginning Dec. 1 on various ocean beaches.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved the Dec. 1-4 dig on evening tides after marine toxin tests show the clams are safe to eat. No digging will be allowed before noon.

Some areas have a mix of both large and small razor clams. Diggers are required to keep the first 15 clams they dig, regardless of size or conditions, to avoid wasting clams, said Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for WDFW.

Diggers should also remember to bring a lantern for the digs with later low tides, Ayres said. The best digging typically occurs one to two hours before low tide.

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

  • Dec. 1, Friday, 4:42 p.m.; -0.3 feet; Copalis
  • Dec. 2, Saturday, 5:29 p.m.; -1.1 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks
  • Dec. 3, Sunday, 6:15 p.m.; -1.6 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis
  • Dec. 4, Monday, 7:02 p.m.; -1.8 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks

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. Each digger's clams must be kept in a separate container.

WDFW has tentatively scheduled another dig for Dec. 31. In the coming weeks, the department also will announce planned digs for January and February, Ayres said.

DUNGENESS RIVER TO REOPEN FOR HATCHERY COHO NOVEMBER 15TH

posted by Mike on 11/14/2017

Dungeness River to re-open Nov. 15 to fishing for hatchery coho salmon

Action: The Dungeness River will re-open to salmon fishing.

Effective date:  Nov. 15 through Nov. 30, 2017.

Species affected:  Hatchery coho salmon. 

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

Reason for action: WDFW recently closed the Dungeness to salmon fishing in an effort to meet hatchery egg take goals. Recent rains brought sufficient coho to the Dungeness Hatchery to satisfy broodstock needs. 

Further Information:  The Dungeness River will re-open to salmon fishing per the rules listed in the "Sport Fishing Rules" pamphlet.

Information contact: Region 6 Office, (360) 249-4628.

MARINE AREAS 8-1,8-2 & 9 CLOSING TO ALL SALMON FISHING AS OF NOVEMBER 13TH

posted by Mike on 11/10/2017

Salmon fishing to close temporarily in marine areas 8-1, 8-2 and 9

Action: Marine areas 8-1, 8-2 and 9 closed to salmon fishing, excluding year-round piers.

Effective Date:  Nov. 13, 2017, until further notice.

Species affected: Salmon.

Location:  Marine areas 8-1 (Deception Pass, Hope Island and Skagit Bay), 8-2 (Port Susan and Port Gamble), and 9 (Admiralty Inlet) within Puget Sound, excluding year-round piers.

Reason for action: Before the salmon fishing season started, WDFW and tribal co-managers agreed to a limited number of chinook encounters – retaining or releasing fish – anglers are allowed in each of these marine areas. Test fishery data indicates that anglers will quickly meet or exceed the guideline for encounters because of the abundant number of juvenile chinook, which anglers can't retain.

WDFW is closing the salmon season temporarily and will re-open when there are fewer juvenile salmon and more legal-sized salmon available for harvest.

Other information:  WDFW biologists will continue to monitor these fisheries and coordinate with the Puget Sound Sportfishing Advisory Group to determine the most appropriate time to re-open to maximize the fishing opportunity. 

Edmonds Public Fishing Pier is unaffected by this rule change and specific regulations can be found in the Washington Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet.

LAKE CHELAN PUTTING OUT NICE KOKANEE

Image may contain: outdoor

Lake Chelan is already putting out some of next years kokanee. Just a few years ago no one thought you could catch them in the winter. Jeff Witkowski of Darrell & Dad's family guide service proved them wrong.

 

If you have a hankering to do a little fishing this winter then a trip over to Chelan with Jeff might just be in the cards. You can set up a trip by calling Darrel & Dad's Family Guide Service at 1-866-360-1523 or (509) 687-0709.

DUNGENESS RIVER CLOSING TO SALMON FISHING

posted by Mike on 11/07/2017

Dungeness River to close to fishing for hatchery coho salmon

Action: The Dungeness River will close to salmon fishing. 

Effective date:  Nov. 8 through Nov. 30, 2017.

Species affected:  Hatchery coho salmon. 

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

Reason for action: WDFW projects not enough coho will return to the hatchery to meet egg take goals. Closing the salmon fishing season on the Dungeness will increase the number of hatchery fish available for broodstock and help ensure future hatchery returns.

Further Information:  The Dungeness River will remain open to trout and steelhead fishing, per the rules listed in the "Sport Fishing Rules" pamphlet. The river may re-open to coho if broodstock needs are met prior to the end of November, when the coho fishery was originally scheduled to close.

LOWER SAMISH RIVER TO RE-OPEN TO FISHING

posted by Mike on 11/03/2017

Lower Samish River to re-open to fishing

Action: Re-opens the lower portion of the Samish River to fishing.

Effective dates:  Nov. 4, 2017.

Species affected:  All species.

Location: Samish River, from the mouth (Bayview-Edison Road) to the I-5 Bridge.

Reasons for action: WDFW previously closed this section of the Samish anticipating the number of returning fall chinook salmon may fall below what was needed to meet egg take goals. The department is re-opening the river to fishing now that fall chinook broodstock collection needs have been met.

Other information: Fishing seasons revert back to permanent regulations as listed in the 2017-18 Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet, which is available online at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations/.

QUILLAYUTE RIVER SYSTEM RE-OPENS TO FISHING - SATURDAY NOVEMBER 4TH

posted by Mike on 11/03/2017

Quillayute River system to re-open to fishing;
anglers must release chinook salmon

OLYMPIA – Anglers can make plans to go fishing on the Olympic Peninsula, where much of the Quillayute River system will re-open beginning Saturday, Nov. 4.

The Quillayute River, as well as sections of the Sol Duc, Bogachiel, Calawah and Dickey rivers will re-open for fishing Nov. 4, but anglers must release all chinook salmon, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) announced today.

WDFW previously closed these rivers to fishing when low river flows were impeding the migration of salmon upstream. The department wanted to ensure that a sufficient number of salmon return to spawning grounds. The Quileute Tribe also closed its fisheries.

"With river levels on the rise, most chinook have moved upstream to the spawning areas, allowing us to re-open these areas to fishing," said Annette Hoffmann, regional fish program manager for WDFW. "However, we want to protect chinook that may still be in these areas, so we're requiring anglers to release any chinook they catch."

Rivers that will re-open to fishing Nov. 4 include:

  • Quillayute River.
  • Sol Duc River downstream of the concrete pump station at the Sol Duc Hatchery.
  • Bogachiel River downstream of the Highway 101 bridge.
  • Calawah River downstream of the Highway 101 bridge.
  • Dickey River from the Olympic National Park boundary upstream to the confluences of the East and West forks.

For more information, including daily catch limits, anglers should check the department's fishing rule change webpage at https://fortress.wa.gov/dfw/erules/efishrules/

HOODSPORT CHUM SALMON FISHERY

posted by Mike on 11/03/2017

The Hoodsport Chum salmon fishery is going well at the present time with lots of fish being caught. On October 28th WDFW checked 53 anglers with 124 Chums. That's not too bad a percentage! This fishery is a combat fishery taking place at the Hoodsport Hatchery and the amout of beach that one can fish off is fairly scant. If you are looking for a few fish for the smoker, eggs for this seasons upcoming steelhead fishery or to put up for caviar this might just be your chance.

 

We have been hearing of a few Chum being caught at Whatcom Creek (Bellingham) and at Chico Creek (Bremerton) for those of you that what something a tad closer! Both have been turning out some fish, but not in the numbers that Hoodsport has.

BLACKMOUTH REPORTS FROM THE OPENER

posted by Mike on 11/02/2017

The reports that we had from yesterdays blackmouth opener were quite lackluster to say the least. Most everyone we spoke with had to deal with quite a number of shakers. No matter what type of gear that was put out, it was plauged by undersized fish. Even those fishing plugs still had sub legal problems. Here's a little rundown on the WDFW checks from the opener.

 

Edmonds     Area 9     9 Boats with 15 Anglers     7 Chinook     .47 Fish/Angler

Everett        Area 8-2  13 Boats with 26 Anglers   1 Chinook     .04 Fish/Angler

Everett       Area 9      29 Boats with 55 Anglers   19 Chinook   ,035 Fish/Angler

Kingston    Area 9      13 Boats with 26 Anglers     2 Chinook    ,08 Fish/Angler

Kingston    Area 10     7 Boats with 17 Anglers     1 Chinook     .06 Fish/Angler

Pt Townsend Area 9   10 Boats with 17 Anglers   10 Chinook    .59 Fish/Angler

Shilshole    Area 9     4 Boats with 7 Anglers        3 Chinook     .43 Fish/Angler

Shilshole   Area 10    3 Boats with 4 Anglers        0 Chinook

 

So as you can see the fishing was far from fantastic. Perhaps no one really found any concentration of fish so it was hit and miss.

 

Weather kept most all but the hardcore in today and the outllook looks a little marginal for the next few days! After all it is November.

GREEN RIVER & NORTH FORK TOUTLE REOPEN FOR COHO

posted by Mike on 11/01/2017

Green River and North Fork Toutle open to retention of coho salmon

Action: Green River (Cowlitz Co.) and North Fork Toutle River open to hatchery coho retention.

Species affected: Coho and chinook salmon

Effective dates: Nov.1 through Nov. 30, 2017

Locations: The North Fork Toutle and Green rivers

Reason for action: The North Toutle Hatchery is now on track to meet egg-take goals for coho salmon, but remains short of the goals for chinook salmon.

Other information: Retention of hatchery coho was closed Oct.17 to allow for collection of necessary broodstock. The daily limit is 6 hatchery coho; up to 2 may be adults. Retention of chinook salmon in the Green and North Fork Toutle rivers was closed Oct. 2 and will remain closed.

COPALIS & MOCROCKS ADDED TO RAZOR CLAM DIGS

posted by Mike on 10/31/2017

Razor clam dig OK'd at Copalis, Mocrocks

OLYMPIA – Copalis and Mocrocks beaches will open later this week for razor clam digging along with Long Beach and Twin Harbors.

Shellfish managers gave the OK today for digging at Copalis and Mocrocks after marine toxin test results indicated clams from those beaches are safe to eat. Last week, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved an opening at Long Beach and Twin Harbors.

State health officials had asked for an additional test on clams at Copalis and Mocrocks after seeing an indication that toxin levels may be rising on those two northern beaches.

Tests conducted this week found toxin levels at Copalis and Mocrocks meet state health standards, said Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for WDFW.

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

  • Nov. 2, Thursday, 6:03 p.m.; 0.1 feet; Copalis
  • Nov. 3, Friday, 6:47 p.m.; -0.7 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks
  • Nov. 4, Saturday, 7:31 p.m.; -1.2 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis
  • Nov. 5, Sunday, 7:16 p.m.; -1.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks

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.

WDFW has tentatively scheduled another dig for Dec. 1-4, pending results of future toxin tests. For more information about those digs or razor clamming, visit WDFW's website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/current.html

PUGET SOUND SQUIDDING

posted by Mike on 10/28/2017

If you are waiting to do a little squidding as you think the season is just coming up, that is not the case. We have seen some very good squidding for the past few months and it appears that it will just continue. We have been receiving great reports out of all of the typical squid fishing spots. Don't think that you will have the spots to yourself as there are far more folks quidding this year than we have seen in the past. Weekends have seen extremely large numbers of folks virtually everywhere. If you want a little more space to yourself then weeknights or the wee hours of the AM when most folks have gone home are the bet.

 

Ted's has a large assortment of the most popular squid jigs as well as a fair selection of components for those of you that enjoy building up your own.

 

We should see good squidding thought the first of the year with the fishery slowing down as the squid go into the spawing season as they die afterward.

RAZOR CLAM DIG OK'D FOR LONG BEACH & TWIN HARBORS

posted by Mike on 10/28/2017

WDFW approves razor clam dig at Long Beach, Twin Harbors;
awaits further toxin tests on 2 beaches

OLYMPIA – A razor clam dig in early November will go ahead as planned at Long Beach and Twin Harbors, but the status of two other ocean beaches tentatively scheduled to open depends on results from additional toxin testing.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has approved the Nov. 3-5 dig on evening tides at Long Beach and Twin Harbors after marine toxin tests showed that clams on those beaches are safe to eat. No digging will be allowed before noon.

Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager, said that test results at Mocrocks and Copalis meet state health standards, but the Washington Department of Health has asked for one more test to be sure. WDFW expects to announce the results of the testing early next week.

Tentative dig dates for Mocrocks and Copalis can be found on WDFW's website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/current.html

Ayres reminds people that they have a daily harvest limit of 15 razor clams and must keep the first 15 clams they dig. Each digger's clams must be kept in a separate container.

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

  • Nov. 3, Friday, 6:47 p.m.; -0.7 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors
  • Nov. 4, Saturday, 7:31 p.m.; -1.2 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors
  • Nov. 5, Sunday, 7:16 p.m.; -1.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors

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.

WDFW has tentatively scheduled another dig for Dec. 1-4, pending results of future toxin tests.
