Skagit River sockeye fishery extended after added two-day river-wide closure
Actions, effective dates, and areas:
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.

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