Chinook fishing to begin Aug. 1 on - 6:38 p.m. 7/29/2014
Chinook fishing to begin Aug. 1 on
two upper Columbia River tributaries

Actions: Opens the chinook salmon seasons on the Chelan River and one section of the Wenatchee River one month earlier than currently listed in the Washington Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet.

Effective Date: Aug. 1, 2014

Effective Locations:

Wenatchee River: From the confluence of Peshastin Creek
(approximately 1,000 feet above Dryden Dam) to the Icicle River Road
bridge on the west end of Leavenworth.

Chelan River: From the railroad bridge at the mouth to the Chelan PUD
safety barrier below the powerhouse.

General rules and daily limits:

Wenatchee River: Minimum size 12 inches. The daily limit is four hatchery chinook salmon, of which only two may be adult hatchery chinook. Selective gear rules (only unscented artificial flies or lures with one single-point barbless hook, knotless nets, no bait allowed) and night closures are in effect. In addition, no boats with motors are allowed (Chelan County ordinance 7.20.190 motorboat restrictions). The regulation allowing 2-pole angling on the Columbia River does not apply to the Wenatchee River.

Chelan River: Minimum size 12 inches. Daily limit is eight; up to two may be adult hatchery chinook and up to four may be sockeye. Release coho and wild adult chinook. Barbless hooks are required and night closures are in effect. In addition, no boats with motors are allowed (Chelan County ordinance 7.20.190 motorboat restrictions) The regulation allowing 2-pole angling on the Columbia River does not apply to the Chelan River.

Species affected: Chinook salmon.

Angler Notes: Hatchery summer chinook can be identified by a missing adipose fin with a healed scar in its location. Anglers are reminded that under statewide regulations they may only retain one daily limit of salmon regardless of the number of waters they fish.

Reason for actions:

Wenatchee River: Hatchery summer chinook returns to the Wenatchee River are predicted to be in excess of spawning escapement needs. The population is not listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The majority of spring chinook and bull trout will have migrated to the upper Wenatchee River, and few steelhead will remain in the mainstem.

Chelan River: Adult chinook salmon released as juveniles from the hatchery rearing facility below the Chelan PUD powerhouse are expected to return in sufficient numbers to provide a fishery and are currently entering the river. The population is not listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

Other information: Anglers must have a current Washington fishing license as well as a Columbia River Salmon and Steelhead Endorsement (CRSSE). Revenue from the endorsement supports salmon or steelhead seasons on many rivers in the Columbia River system, including enforcing fishery regulations and monitoring the upper Columbia River spring chinook fisheries. The endorsement has generated more than $1 million annually for WDFW to maintain and increase fishing opportunities throughout the Columbia River basin.

Information contacts: Travis Maitland, District 7 Fish Biologist, Wenatchee, (509) 665-3337; Jeff Korth, Region 2 Fish Program Manager, Ephrata, (509) 754-4624

Fishers must have a current Washington fishing license, appropriate to the fishery. Check the WDFW "Fishing in Washington" rules pamphlet for details on fishing seasons 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.

Summer chinook mark selective fishery - 7:02 p.m. 7/22/2014
Summer chinook mark selective fishery
to open in the Entiat River

Action: Anglers will be able to fish for and retain adipose fin-clipped adult and jack summer chinook salmon in the lower mainstem Entiat River beginning July 25, 2014.

Effective date: July 25 through Sept. 30, 2014.

Location: Upstream from the Alternate Highway 97 Bridge near the mouth of the Entiat River to the upper Roaring Creek Road Bridge, immediately downstream of the Entiat National Fish Hatchery.

Daily limit: Two hatchery chinook salmon, (adult or jack) minimum size 12 inches. Anglers are reminded that under statewide regulations they may only retain one daily limit of salmon regardless of the number of waters they fish in.

Species affected: Chinook salmon.

General Rules: Hatchery summer chinook are identified by a missing adipose fin with a healed scar in its location. All other fish must be released. Selective gear rules (single barbless lures or flies, knotless nets, no bait allowed). In addition, no boats with motors (Chelan Co ordinance 7.20.190 Motorboat restrictions) and a night closure are in effect. The regulation allowing two-pole angling on the Columbia River does not apply to the Entiat River.

Reason for action: Hatchery summer chinook returning to the Entiat River are predicted to be in excess of hatchery brood stock needs. The population is not listed under the Endangered Species Act. The majority of spring chinook and bull trout will have migrated to the upper reaches of the Entiat River, and few steelhead will be present during this fishery.

Anglers are required to possess a Columbia River Salmon/Steelhead Endorsement as part of their valid fishing license. Revenue from the endorsement supports salmon or steelhead seasons on many rivers in the Columbia River system, including enforcing fishery regulations and monitoring the upper Columbia River spring chinook fisheries

A portion of Marine Area 7 South - 2:10 p.m. 7/22/2014
A portion of Marine Area 7 South
reopening for spot shrimp fishing

Action: The portion of Marine Area 7 South that is west of Point Colville is reopening for six days of recreational spot shrimp fishing. The portion of Marine Area 7 South that is east of Point Colville will remain closed to spot shrimp fishing.

Effective date: July 29 through Aug. 3, 2014

Species affected: All shrimp species

Location: Marine Area 7 South lies west of a line projected due south from Point Colville on Lopez Island. This open area includes the Iceberg Point and Salmon Bank shrimp fishing grounds. The area east of Point Colville that will remain closed includes the Biz Point shrimp fishing ground.

Reason for action: Sufficient recreational spot shrimp quota remains in this area for six more days of fishing. The eastern portion of Marine Area 7 South (including Biz Point) has a separate spot shrimp quota, and the quota was reached in that area during the recreational shrimp season in May.

Other information: Marine Areas 4, 5, 6 and 7 West remain open daily to all shrimp species.

Contact: Mark O'Toole, La Conner, (360) 466-4345 ext. 241.
