WDFW FISHING RULE CHANGE
Quillayute River and most tributaries to close Oct. 16 due to low river flows
Action: Closes the Quillayute, Sol Duc, and Dickey rivers to all fishing.
Closes sections of the Bogachiel and Calawah rivers to salmon fishing and other sections of those rivers to all fishing.
Effective date: Oct. 16, 2017 until further notice.
Locations and affected species:
Reason for action: Unusually low river flows in recent weeks have created difficult migrating conditions for returning salmon, impeding their movement upstream. The closure is intended to protect these fish until flow conditions change sufficiently to enable normal salmon migration and the attainment of escapement goals.
These rivers will re-open when flows have normalized sufficiently to allow consistent, unimpeded migration.
Further Information: The Quileute Tribe is closing fisheries in the Quillayute River until flows improve and Olympic National Park is closing waters within the park boundaries.
Information contact: Region 6 Office, (360) 249-4628.
