WDFW FISHING RULE CHANGE
Coho retention in the Green River continues through Dec. 31
Action: Re-opens coho retention and closes steelhead retention on the Green (Duwamish) River through Dec. 31, 2016.
Effective dates: Immediately through Dec. 31, 2016.
Species affected: Salmon.
Locations and closure dates:
Green (Duwamish) River (King County): From 1st Ave. South Bridge upstream to water pipeline walk bridge (1/2 mile downstream of Tacoma Headworks Dam).
Other Information: Release chinook and steelhead.
Reasons for action: These river sections had been closed to coho retention after Oct. 31, 2016, under a state-tribal agreement to protect coho salmon. The coho return is stronger than anticipated and can support continued sport and tribal retention fisheries.
Information Contact: Mill Creek Regional Office, (425) 775-1311.
