Species affected: Coho salmon and gamefish.
Effective dates: Sept. 28 through Nov. 30, 2016.
Locations for salmon:
Locations for gamefish:
Reasons for action: The Skagit, Cascade and Sauk rivers were originally closed to all fishing under a state and tribal co-manager agreement to protect coho salmon. An in-season co-manager joint test fishery indicated that the coho return is stronger than expected, allowing the co-managers to open fisheries for coho and gamefish.
Other information: Sport anglers should be aware that tribal fisheries also are underway and should avoid interfering with those fisheries.
