WDFW FISHING RULE CHANGE
Clarifies regulations for the Humptulips River
Action: Anglers will be limited to one adult hatchery chinook as part of the two-adult salmon daily limit in the Humptulips River beginning Oct.16 through Oct. 31.
Beginning Nov. 1, anglers must release all chinook salmon.
This action nullifies a previous emergency rule change, which allowed for retention of two adult hatchery chinook, and makes the regulations on the Humptulips consistent with those listed in the 2017-18 Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet.
Species affected: Salmon.
Location and dates: Humptulips River from the mouth to confluence with the East and West forks.
Reason for action: This is to provide clarity to the salmon fishing regulations on the Humptulips River. The regulations implement the fishing plans agreed-to with co-managers at the North of Falcon proceedings.
Other information: Steelhead and gamefish rules are as listed in the 2017-18 Washington Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet.
Information Contact: Mike Scharpf, Region 6, (360) 249-1205.
