August 31, 2018 Contact: Jeremy Trump, 509-382-1005 Anglers limited to one hatchery steelhead on Snake River, other southeast Washington streams OLYMPIA Fishery managers are reducing the daily limit for hatchery steelhead to one fish on the Snake River and other streams in southeast Washington beginning Sept. 4 to protect weak runs. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will implement the new rule on the Snake River, as well as the Grande Ronde, Touchet, Tucannon, and Walla Walla rivers. Chris Donley, WDFW regional fish program manager, said monitoring at Bonneville Dam now indicates that 96,500 upriver steelhead will return to the Columbia River this year, down from 182,400 fish projected before the fishing season began. Many of those fish are bound for the Snake River, the largest tributary of the Columbia, and its tributaries. "Making this change now will help us meet our conservation objectives for wild steelhead and still allow anglers some fishing opportunity," Donley said. "However, we will continue to monitor the run of steelhead to the Snake River and adjust as necessary." The new rule comes just a week after fishery managers closed a large section of the Columbia River to steelhead fishing. State fishery managers also announced on Friday that steelhead retention will close Sept. 4 on the lower White Salmon River, another tributary of the Columbia River. More information on that is available online at https://fortress.wa.gov/dfw/erules/efishrules/, where the rule changes on the Snake River and its tributaries can also be found.

September 2018 Contact: (Fish) 360-902-2700 (Wildlife) 360-902-2515 Hunters take to the field, salmon move upriver The sun is setting earlier and the leaves are starting to turn color signs of another change of season. Fall is in the air, and hunters are heading out for the first major hunting seasons of the year. Salmon fisheries are also underway in the Columbia River, Puget Sound and other waters, and anglers are still reeling in trout from lakes throughout Washington. September highlights include: Deer and elk: Early general archery hunts will open for deer and elk in many areas of the state. Canada geese: Hunters will have an opportunity to go afield for Canada geese before the primary waterfowl seasons get underway in October. Youth-only hunts: The special bird hunt for hunters under age 16 is split between two weekends. The hunt for ducks and geese is set for Sept. 22-23 on the west side of the state and Sept. 29-30 on the eastside. Youth hunters can also hunt pheasants Sept. 22-23 statewide. Columbia River salmon: Coho salmon are the name of the game downriver from the Rocky Point/Tongue Point line, while the chinook fishery moves upstream.

Hunters take to the field, salmon
move upriver

The sun is setting earlier and the
leaves are starting to turn color
signs of another change of season.
Fall is in the air, and hunters are
heading out for the first major
hunting seasons of the year.

Salmon fisheries are also underway in
the Columbia River, Puget Sound and
other waters, and anglers are still
reeling in trout from lakes
throughout Washington.

September highlights include:

Deer and elk: Early general archery
hunts will open for deer and elk in
many areas of the state.
Canada geese: Hunters will have an
opportunity to go afield for Canada
geese before the primary waterfowl
seasons get underway in October.
Youth-only hunts: The special bird
hunt for hunters under age 16 is
split between two weekends. The hunt
for ducks and geese is set for Sept.
22-23 on the west side of the state
and Sept. 29-30 on the eastside.
Youth hunters can also hunt pheasants
Sept. 22-23 statewide.
Columbia River salmon: Coho salmon
are the name of the game downriver
from the Rocky Point/Tongue Point
line, while the chinook fishery moves
upstream.
Eastern Washington lakes: Fishing for
trout and warmwater species, such as
bass and yellow perch, should
continue to be good at several
eastern Washington lakes.
