MARINE AREA 11 OPENS TO SALMON FISHING JUNE 1ST

posted by Mike on 05/31/2018

Salmon season opens June 1 in Marine Area 11 
with a modified daily catch limit

Action: Marine Area 11 (Tacoma-Vashon Island) will open June 1 for salmon fishing as listed in the 2017-18 pamphlet but anglers will be able to retain only one hatchery chinook as part of a two-salmon daily limit; release wild chinook.

Effective Date:  Effective 12:01 a.m., Friday, June 1, through 11:59 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018.

Species affected: Salmon.

Location: Marine Area 11 (Tacoma-Vashon Island).

Reason for action: This emergency rule modifies fisheries listed in the 2017-18 Washington Sportfishing Rules pamphlet to reflect fisheries agreed to during this year’s North of Falcon, the annual salmon-season setting process.

Other information:  Anglers will be allowed to retain 2 salmon but only 1 chinook as part of the daily salmon limit for the summer fishery. For the 2018 summer season, Area 11 will have a chinook catch quota of 5,344 fish. Fishery managers anticipate that the lower daily catch limit will allow the chinook fishery to remain open through the summer.

Information contact: Mark Baltzell, (360) 902-2807.
