Effective dates: Oct.16, 2016 through Dec. 31, 2016.
Species affected: Coho salmon
Location: Mainstem Puyallup River from 11th Street Bridge to the mouth of the Carbon River.
Reasons for action: Egg-take goals have been met at Voights Creek Hatchery. Due to continued uncertainty surrounding wild coho escapement and conservation goals, anglers are required to release wild coho and wild steelhead.
Other information: Regulations in the Puyallup River now allow for the retention of 2 chum salmon as described by the Sport fishing Rules 2016/2017. Effective Oct. 16 through Dec. 31, up to 2 adults may be retained of which only 2 may be any combination of chum and hatchery coho. Release chinook salmon and wild coho.
