Retention of hatchery coho on the Sol Duc River extended through Dec. 15
Action: Salmon retention on the Sol Duc River is scheduled to end Nov. 30. This action extends the harvest of hatchery coho on the Sol Duc River through Dec.15.
Effective date: Dec. 1, 2016 through Dec. 15, 2016.
Species affected: Returning hatchery fall coho.
Location: The Sol Duc River downstream of the hatchery.
Reason for action: Coho broodstock needs at the Sol Duc Hatchery have been met, and there are surplus hatchery (adipose fin clipped) coho in the Sol Duc River below the hatchery. The Sol Duc is open for trout and steelhead fishing, and this action allows anglers to retain hatchery coho along with trout and hatchery steelhead.
Other information: Daily limit 2 fish; minimum size 14 inches; release all wild steelhead, wild coho, and chinook.
On Dec.16 the regulations will revert to those indicated in the 2016/17 “Washington Sport Fishing Rules” pamphlet for the Sol Duc River.
Information contact: David Low, WDFW fish biologist, (360) 249-1216.
