WDFW FISHING RULE CHANGE
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.
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.
