2022 Dungeness River Fishing Report:




Dungeness and Gray Wolf rivers will not open to fishing due to low water conditions

October 13, 2022

Action: Closes all fishing.

Effective date: Oct. 16, 2022, until further notice.

Species affected: All species.


  • Dungeness River (Clallam Co.); from the mouth upstream.
  • Gray Wolf River (Clallam Co.); from the mouth upstream.

Reason for action: Unseasonably dry weather has resulted in extreme low water conditions in the Dungeness River system. This closure is necessary to protect fish that are unable to move upstream to their spawning grounds as well as existing Chinook redds.

Additional information: Fishery co-managers will continue to monitor river conditions and escapement for greater certainty that spawning needs will be met before re-opening.

Anglers can be notified of in-season rule changes as they are announced by signing up for WDFW Regulation Updates at wdfw.wa.gov/about/lists.

Information contact: Region 6 Office, 360-249-4628.

Fishers must have a current Washington fishing license, appropriate to the fishery. Check the WDFW “Fishing in Washington” rules pamphlet for details on definitions and regulations. Fishing rules are subject to change. Check the WDFW Fishing hotline for the latest rule information at 360-902-2500, press 2 for recreational rules.
