Columbia River steelhead daily limit reduced to one fish upstream of McNary Dam Action: The current two (2) hatchery steelhead daily limit is reduced to one (1) hatchery steelhead, consistent with all other downstream steelhead fisheries. Effective dates: Sept. 15 through Dec. 31, 2016. Species affected: Hatchery steelhead. Location: Columbia River from McNary Dam upstream to the Highway 395 Bridge in Pasco (CRC 533), including the Snake River Confluence Protection Area (see page 53 in the 2016-17 Washington Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet). Reason for action: The total (hatchery and wild fish) forecast for Upper Columbia River (UCR) steelhead passage at Priest Rapids Dam this year is much less than expected. UCR steelhead are listed as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act. Passage projections are well below broodstock and natural escapement targets. Reducing the daily steelhead limit now, rather than in November as scheduled, will provide additional conservation measures intended to increase the number of natural spawning fish. Reduced bag limits in downstream mainstem Columbia River fisheries began Aug. 1 downstream of Bonneville Dam, and Sept. 1 downstream of McNary Dam. All other regulations published in the fishing pamphlet continue to apply to the fishery affected by this rule change.

WDFW tentatively schedules razor clam digs through December OLYMPIA – The first razor clam dig of the fall season is planned for mid-October on four ocean beaches with additional digs tentatively scheduled through December. Final approval of all scheduled openings will depend on results of marine toxin tests that show the clams are safe to eat, said Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). "We’re releasing a tentative schedule earlier than usual this year to give people plenty of time to make plans to go digging this fall,” Ayres said. “We also invite comments on management options, including dig scheduling, for our spring openings that we plan to announce later this year." Comments on the spring digs can be sent via email to razorclams@dfw.wa.gov. A summary of last season and an overview of the recently completed 2016-17 razor clam stock assessment are available on WDFW’s razor clam webpage at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/seasons_set.html. WDFW estimates the total razor clam population on Washington’s ocean beaches has increased slightly over last year. “Long Beach has the largest population of razor clams the department has measured in the last 25 years,” Ayres said. “The population at Twin Harbors also is strong and should provide good digging opportunities this year.” However, Mocrocks and Copalis show population declines, which will mean fewer digging days on those beaches this year. The first proposed razor clam dig, along with evening low tides and beaches, is listed below: Oct. 14, Friday, 5:55 p.m.; 0.2 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Mocrocks Oct. 15, Saturday, 6:42 p.m.; -0.6 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Mocrocks Oct. 16, Sunday, 7:28 p.m.; -1.1 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Mocrocks Oct. 17, Monday, 8:16 p.m.; -1.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors Oct. 18, Tuesday, 9:04 p.m.; -1.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors Oct. 19, Wednesday, 9:55 p.m.; -1.1 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors Oct. 20, Thursday, 10:50 p.m.; -0.7 feet; Long Beach Oct. 21, Friday, 11:50 p.m.; -0.1 feet; Long Beach A list of additional proposed openings through Dec. 31, 2016, is available on WDFW’s razor clam webpage at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/current.html, where more information about razor clam digging can be found. WDFW continues monitoring toxin levels on all ocean beaches. The start of last season was delayed due to elevated levels of domoic acid, a natural toxin produced by certain types of marine algae. Recent testing indicates levels of domoic acid on all of Washington’s ocean beaches are well within state public health standards.

WDFW tentatively schedules razor clam
digs through December

OLYMPIA – The first razor clam dig of
the fall season is planned for mid-
October on four ocean beaches with
additional digs tentatively scheduled
through December.

Final approval of all scheduled
openings will depend on results of
marine toxin tests that show the
clams are safe to eat, said Dan
Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for
the Washington Department of Fish and
Wildlife (WDFW).

"We’re releasing a tentative schedule
earlier than usual this year to give
people plenty of time to make plans
to go digging this fall,” Ayres said.
“We also invite comments on

scheduling, for our spring openings
that we plan to announce later this

WDFW estimates the total razor clam
population on Washington’s ocean
beaches has increased slightly over
last year.

“Long Beach has the largest
population of razor clams the
department has measured in the last
25 years,” Ayres said. “The
population at Twin Harbors also is
strong and should provide good
digging opportunities this year.”

However, Mocrocks and Copalis show
population declines, which will mean
fewer digging days on those beaches

Lake Washington to open for coho fishing Sept. 16 OLYMPIA – Anglers will have the opportunity to fish for coho salmon in Lake Washington starting Sept. 16, state salmon managers announced today. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) initially planned to keep Lake Washington closed to salmon fishing due to the low number of coho forecast to return to the watershed this year. However, the number of fish passing through the Ballard Locks in early September indicates a much stronger run of coho than anticipated, said Kyle Adicks, salmon fisheries policy lead for WDFW. Earlier this year, state and tribal co-managers agreed to consider allowing a fishery in Lake Washington if more than 10,000 coho were expected to return. The co-managers had projected a run of 4,414 coho to return to Lake Washington this year. "We now expect far more coho to return than forecast to Lake Washington, allowing for some salmon fishing opportunity," Adicks said. Tribal co-managers also plan to hold coho fisheries in Lake Washington. The recreational fishery will be open Sept. 16 through Oct. 31, as it has been in previous years. Anglers can keep two coho but are required to release chinook and sockeye salmon. More details about the fishery are available on WDFW's fishing rule change website at https://fortress.wa.gov/dfw/erules/efishrules/erule.jsp?id=1861 State and tribal co-managers also are evaluating the run of coho returning to the Green River. Similar to Lake Washington, the river has been closed to salmon fishing to protect coho. WDFW and tribal co-managers likely will make a decision soon on whether to hold coho fisheries in the Green River, Adicks said.

OLYMPIA – Anglers will have the

WDFW concludes its first statewide trout fishing derby Olympia – Anglers claimed more than 340 prizes during the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (WDFW) first annual statewide fishing derby. The trout derby ran from April 23 through Sept. 6, with more than 130 license dealers donating prizes, including charter fishing trips, gift cards, and rod and reel combos. The department planted more than 700 tagged fish in lowland lakes this spring. Anglers lucky enough to catch one of these fish could exchange the tag for a corresponding prize. With the potential for anglers to win more than $20,000 in prizes, the department provided more reasons to fish Washington this past spring and summer, said Larry Phillips, WDFW’s inland fish program manager. “The fact that almost half the prizes were claimed indicates that many people fished hard this summer, and we hope the derby built excitement for fishing among both veterans and new anglers,” said Phillips. Anticipation is already building for next year’s derby, said Phillips. “We want to thank the large pool of participating license dealers as well as all the anglers who fished for fun and prizes,” he added. While finished for 2016, the department has begun planning to host the trout fishing derby again in 2017.

moves through, just sit, watch, and
wait, more will come. Don't fish
where all the other guys are, find
your own little rapids, and wait.
They will come. This will last for
another week at least before things
slowly stop.

There are individual fish too hanging
around, but they are not the main
focus. These fish are easy to see
with polarized sunglasses.

They are a mix of bright and dark
fish.
