DUNGENESS RIVER CLOSE TO FISHING EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 26TH, 2018s

posted by Mike on 10/25/2018

A portion of the Dungeness River closes to fishing until coho abundance improves

Action: Closes all fishing for a portion of the Dungeness River.

Effective date: October 26, 2018 until further notice.

Species affected: All species.

Location: Dungeness River from the mouth to the Gray Wolf River at the Dungeness Forks Campground.

Reason for action: Currently the number of coho salmon that have returned to the Dungeness River is below pre-season expectations. To help ensure escapement needs are met, the river will close to angling until further notice.    

Additional information: Fishery co-managers will continue to monitor escapement. Once there is greater certainty that broodstock needs and spawning objectives will be met, the fishery will re-opened.

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