HOKO RIVER CLOSING TO ALL STEELHEAD RETENTION

posted by Mike on 12/12/2019

Anglers must release all steelhead in the Hoko River

Action: Requires the release of all steelhead in the Hoko River.

Effective date: Dec. 12, 2019, until further notice.

Species affected: Hatchery steelhead.

Locations: Hoko River (Clallam County), from the mouth to the Ellis Creek Bridge (river mile 18.5).

Reason for action: Preseason expectations of hatchery-origin steelhead are low, requiring the release of hatchery steelhead to meet hatchery broodstock goals.

Additional information: If broodstock goals are met, the river may reopen to hatchery steelhead retention. Anglers should refer to the 2019-20 Washington Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet for other ongoing fishing opportunities. The pamphlet is available online at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations/.

Information contact: Region 6 Montesano office, 360-249-4628.
