2015 Skykomish River Fishing Report:


Skykomish River hatchery Chinook fishery will not open June 1


Action: Close the Skykomish River to the retention of hatchery chinook salmon.

Effective date: June 1 through July 31, 2015.

Species affected: Hatchery chinook salmon.

Location: The Skykomish River from the mouth upstream to the mouth of the Wallace River.

Reason for action:   The forecast run size for Wallace River hatchery chinook is below broodstock needs.  Hatchery rack returns will be closely monitored and if early returns indicate that the run size will meet broodstock needs the Skykomish mark selective fishery will open. 

Other information: Trout and other game fish are open as listed in the current Sport Fishing rules pamphlet.

Information contact: Jennifer Whitney, District 13 fish biologist, (425) 775 -1311
