2016 Skykomish River Fishing Report:




Skykomish near Reiter Ponds and Wallace River to close to fishing

Action: Close part of Wallace and Skykomish rivers to fishing.

Effective date: Fishing to close at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 30, 2016 through Feb. 15, 2017.

Species affected: All species.


  • Wallace River: From the railroad trestle (downstream of Hwy 2 bridge) to 200 feet upstream of water intake at Wallace hatchery.
  • Skykomish River at Reiter Ponds: From 1,500 feet upstream to 1,000 feet downstream of Reiter Ponds outlet.

Reasons for action: The return of hatchery winter steelhead to Wallace and Reiter hatcheries for broodstock purposes are well below required numbers. The closures are necessary to protect adult hatchery fish holding near these WDFW hatchery facilities until they can be trapped to meet broodstock needs.
