WDFW FISHING RULE CHANGE 

Quillayute River and tributaries (Sol Duc, Dickey, Bogachiel, and Calawah rivers) to close to fishing


Action: Closes to all fishing.

Effective date: Nov. 4, 2019 through Nov. 22, 2019.

Species affected: All fish species.

Location: Quillayute River and tributaries (including Sol Duc, Dickey, Bogachiel and Calawah rivers).

Reason for action: Early season abundance indicators confirm the returning Quillayute River wild coho salmon run is below harvestable levels. This conservation measure is necessary to allow more fish to reach the spawning grounds in order to meet wild escapement goals.

Additional information:  The Quileute Tribe, Olympic National Park, and WDFW have agreed to close their respective fisheries to protect wild coho. The rivers will re-open to fishing on Nov. 23, 2019, when coho have cleared the fishing area.  See special rules for each river in the Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet. Wild coho release will remain in effect for all rivers.

Please see the 2019-20 Washington Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet for additional rules, or visit the WDFW website at https://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations and continue to check for emergency regulations in the affected area.

"After consideration of all the data and advisor’s input, the Department will be issuing emergency regulations to close both the commercial and recreational fisheries in Willapa Bay. Commercial salmon fisheries scheduled to begin on Monday, November 11th will be closed until further notice. Because we were delayed in getting these rules through the authorization process today, the emergency regulation closing recreational fisheries in Willapa Bay will be forthcoming early next week. "
