DUNGENESS RIVER TO REOPEN TO ANGLING

posted by Mike on 11/01/2018

Dungeness River to reopen to fishing

Action:  Reopens a portion of the Dungeness River to permanent rule as listed in the Sport Fishing Rules Pamphlet.

 Effective date:  Nov. 1, 2018.

Species affected:  All species.

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

Reason for action: River levels have returned to normal allowing for sufficient upstream passage of coho such that the Department expects to achieve egg take goals at the hatchery.

Additional information: Salmon daily limit will return to 4 hatchery coho, all other salmon must be released.

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

 

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.

 

DUNGENESS RIVER TO REOPEN FOR HATCHERY COHO NOVEMBER 15TH

posted by Mike on 11/13/2017

Dungeness River to re-open Nov. 15 to fishing for hatchery coho salmon

Action: The Dungeness River will re-open to salmon fishing.

Effective date:  Nov. 15 through Nov. 30, 2017.

Species affected:  Hatchery coho salmon. 

Location:  The Dungeness River downstream of the hatchery intake pipe.

Reason for action: WDFW recently closed the Dungeness to salmon fishing in an effort to meet hatchery egg take goals. Recent rains brought sufficient coho to the Dungeness Hatchery to satisfy broodstock needs. 

Further Information:  The Dungeness River will re-open to salmon fishing per the rules listed in the "Sport Fishing Rules" pamphlet.

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

DUNGENESS RIVER CLOSING TO SALMON FISHING

posted by Mike on 11/06/2017

Dungeness River to close to fishing for hatchery coho salmon

Action: The Dungeness River will close to salmon fishing. 

Effective date:  Nov. 8 through Nov. 30, 2017.

Species affected:  Hatchery coho salmon. 

Location:  The Dungeness River downstream of the hatchery intake pipe.

Reason for action: WDFW projects not enough coho will return to the hatchery to meet egg take goals. Closing the salmon fishing season on the Dungeness will increase the number of hatchery fish available for broodstock and help ensure future hatchery returns.

Further Information:  The Dungeness River will remain open to trout and steelhead fishing, per the rules listed in the "Sport Fishing Rules" pamphlet. The river may re-open to coho if broodstock needs are met prior to the end of November, when the coho fishery was originally scheduled to close.

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

 

GOOD COHO FISHING IN THE DUNGENESS

posted by Mike on 10/19/2017

The Dungeness River has been putting out some fairly good Coho fishing the past couple of days. It's just like most of our other rivers that have finally seen an influx of water with our Fall rains and with it a good push of fish from the saltwater. One of our customers was on the lower Dungeness down by the schoolhouse at Jamestown and saw numerous guys packing out fish late yesterday afternoon.

You'll just have to watch the weather to make sure we just don't end up with a little too much rain which will end up making the river unfishable.

If you have never fished the Dungeness it's a nice fishable smallish stream that has fairly good access in quite a number of spots from the Bay up to the hachery above Hwy 101.

Give it a try if you have a little time.

 

DUNGENESS TO OPEN FOR HATCHERY COHO OCTOBER 16TH THROUGH NOVEMBER 27TH

posted by Mike on 10/13/2016

Dungeness River opens to sport fishing for hatchery coho Oct. 16

Action: The river will be open from the mouth to the hatchery intake pipe at river mile 11.3.

Effective date: Oct. 16 through Nov. 27, 2016.

Species affected:  Hatchery coho salmon returning to the Dungeness River. 

Location:  The Dungeness River downstream of the hatchery intake pipe.

Other information: Daily limit 4 hatchery coho only (marked with an adipose fin clip); minimum size 12 inches; release all wild (unclipped) coho and all other salmon. 

Reason for action: In-season information indicates coho salmon have returned in sufficient numbers to provide for hatchery broodstock needs and a sport fishing opportunity.
