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.
