HATCHERY COHO MAY BE RETAINED IN TULALIP BAY BUBBLE FISHERY

posted by Mike on 09/14/2016

Hatchery coho can be retained in Tulalip Bubble fishery

Action: Hatchery coho can be kept as part of the daily limit in the Tulalip Bubble fishery. 

Effective Date:  Saturday and Sundays only, effective Sept. 17 through Sept. 25, 2016.

Species affected: Salmon.

Location: Waters west of Tulalip Bay and within 2,000 feet of shore from the pilings at Old Bower's Resort, to a fishing boundary marker approximately 1.4 miles northwest of Hermosa Point.

Reason for action: The Tulalip Bubble is currently open to salmon fishing on Saturdays and Sundays. There are sufficient hatchery coho returning to Tulalip Bay to allow the retention of hatchery coho while not increasing impacts on wild chinook and wild coho.   

Other information:  The daily limit is 2 salmon, release wild chinook and wild coho. Anglers may fish with two poles if they have a Two-Pole Endorsement.

Anglers can fish for coho and chinook in Marine Area 12 (Hood Canal) and Sinclair Inlet.  Anglers can fish for chinook in Marine Area 7 (San Juan Islands).  Marine Area 8-2 is scheduled to reopen in November for chinook.

For specific regulations, anglers should consult the 2016-17 Washington Sports Fishing Rules pamphlet available online at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations/.
