2017 Skagit River Fishing Report:

 

WDFW Fishing Rule Change

 

Skagit River sockeye fishery extended after added two-day river-wide closure

Actions, effective dates, and areas:

  • Extends the fishing season for all species, including sockeye salmon, through July 21 on the Skagit River from Hwy. 536 at Mt. Vernon (Memorial Hwy. Bridge) to the mouth of Gilligan Creek. This section of the river was previously scheduled to close July 16 for the season.
  • Closes the Skagit River from the mouth to the Highway 530 Bridge in Rockport to all fishing July 12 and 13. The river was previously scheduled to be open to fishing these dates.

Reasons for action: Sufficient numbers of sockeye have returned, allowing fish managers to extend the fishing season through July 21.

The additional closure dates are necessary to avoid gear conflicts with tribal fisheries now scheduled for those dates.

Other information: Salmon daily limit: 3 sockeye only. Night closure is in effect.

All rules that were in effect from June 1-July 15 on the Skagit River from the Highway 536 Bridge in Mt Vernon upstream to Gilligan Creek will remain in effect through the extension.

Please refer to the Baker Sockeye webpage located at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/salmon/sockeye/baker_river.html for further information on seasons, fishing rule updates and fish counts.

Information contact: Mill Creek Regional Office (425) 775-1311.
