Most of Puget Sound closes to crabbing Sept. 3; summer catch reports due Oct. 1 OLYMPIA Most areas of Puget Sound will close to recreational crab fishing on Labor Day (Sept. 3), when anyone harvesting crab from a boat must retrieve their gear by one hour after sunset. Crabbers fishing from shore or from piers have until the end of the day on Sept. 3 to retrieve their gear. All sport fishers licensed to fish for Dungeness crab anywhere in Puget Sound have through Oct. 1 to submit summer catch reports to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). The only two areas of the Sound that will remain open to crab fishing after Labor Day are marine areas 7-North and 7-South near the San Juan Islands. These two areas will remain open Thursdays through Mondays each week through Sept. 30. Sport fishers who crab in those two areas after Sept. 3 must record their catch on winter catch record cards, which are available at sporting goods stores and other license vendors across the state. Crabbers are reminded that marine areas 11 and 13 are not open for crab fishing to allow Dungeness crab populations to rebuild. Summer catch record cards can be submitted to WDFW by mail at CRC Unit, P.O. Box 43142, Olympia, WA 98504-3142. Crab fishers can also report their catch online at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov/#/login from Sept. 4 through Oct. 1. Crabbers who fail to file their catch reports on time will face a $10 fine when they purchase a 2019 Puget Sound crab endorsement. "Catch reports play a major role in determining how much crab is still available for harvest during the winter season," said Bob Sizemore, WDFW's shellfish policy lead. "It's important that we receive reports from everyone licensed to fish for crab in Puget Sound - whether or not they caught crab this year." Sizemore said WDFW will announce winter crab seasons for Puget Sound in early October, after completing its assessment of the summer fishery.

Weekender report - 11:42 a.m. 8/29/2018
Fish and Wildlife Commission revises
proposed license fee increase

OLYMPIA The Washington Fish and
Wildlife Commission is proposing a
15-percent boost in recreational
hunting and fishing license fees for
2019, with caps on the increase for
people who buy multiple licenses in
"bundled" packages.

The commission, a citizen board
appointed by the governor to set
policy for the Washington Department
of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), will
include the recommendation with other
proposals designed to eliminate a $31
million gap between projected revenue
and expenses during the two-year
state budget cycle that begins next
July.

The commissioners voted on Monday
(Aug. 27) to replace an earlier 5-
percent proposed increase with the
15-percent proposal. To cushion the
impact on people who buy multiple
hunting and fishing licenses, the
commission would limit the maximum
increase for bundled packages to $7
for fishing and $15 for hunting. For
example, WDFW sells multiple fishing
licenses in the "Fish Washington"
package and plans to create
additional value packages to hold
down license costs for avid
recreationists.

The commission's action came after 15
conservationists and outdoor
recreation advocates who serve on a
WDFW budget and policy advisory group
expressed concern that the 5-percent
increase approved by commissioners on
Aug. 10 would not have contributed
enough revenue to close the funding
shortfall.

The revenue generated by a 5-percent
boost "is far less than just the
effect of inflation since the last
(2011) fee increase and we fear will
be frowned upon by legislators and
force the department into cuts that
will harm our interests and the
state's natural resources," they
wrote.

"The commission never likes to
propose fee increases, but WDFW needs
better funding to meet public
expectations and ongoing legal
requirements," Chairman Brad Smith
said after Monday's decision.
"Knowing we have the support of key
recreation and conservation leaders
enabled us to improve the balance of
our funding request between general
tax dollars and revenue from license
sales."

With Monday's revision, the
commission directed WDFW to propose
to Governor Inslee that the state
close the $31 million funding gap and
make another $28 million of spending
increases with a mix of roughly 75
percent in general funds and 25
percent in increased license revenue.
Earlier in August, the commission
also approved making the Columbia
River Salmon and Steelhead
Endorsement permanent, which would
otherwise expire June 30, 2019.

The commission approved the license-
fee revision on a voice vote, with
only Commissioner Don McIsaac
expressing opposition.

Additional information about WDFW's
budget and policy development for the
2019 legislative session is available
at
https://wdfw.wa.gov/about/budget/deve
lopment/. The site will be updated as
the department completes its budget
and fee proposals, which are due to
the governor in mid-September.

Persons with disabilities who need to
receive this information in an
alternative format or who need
reasonable accommodations to
participate in WDFW-sponsored public
meetings or other activities may
contact Dolores Noyes by phone (360-

WDFW NEWS RELEASE Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife 600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091 http://wdfw.wa.gov/ August 24, 2018 Contact: Ryan Lothrop, 360-902-2808 or 360-906-6716 Large portion of Columbia River will close to steelhead fishing to protect weak runs OLYMPIA Starting Monday (Aug. 27), anglers must release any steelhead they intercept on a large portion of the Columbia River under a new emergency rule adopted by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). The new rule, prompted by a sharp decline in projected returns of upriver summer steelhead, will be in effect until further notice from Buoy 10 at the mouth of the Columbia River to Highway 395 in Pasco. Ryan Lothrop, Columbia River fishery coordinator for WDFW, said monitoring at Bonneville Dam now indicates that 110,300 upriver steelhead will return to the Columbia this year, down from 182,400 fish projected before the fishing season began. The new projection is similar to the number of steelhead that returned last year, when fishery managers from Washington and Oregon closed steelhead fishing in the Columbia and many of its tributaries. Although the new emergency rule does not close fisheries in area tributaries, that may be necessary in the weeks ahead, Lothrop said. Many factors are clearly taking a toll on our steelhead populations right now, including difficult ocean conditions, he said. We need to do whats necessary to protect these runs. WDFW recently prohibited fishing for salmon or steelhead at night to protect steelhead in the same waters of the Columbia River that will close to all steelhead fishing. That night closure will remain in effect from Buoy 10 to Pasco, and at the Wind River and Drano Lake, two tributaries of the Columbia River.

Large portion of Columbia River will
close
to steelhead fishing to protect weak
runs

OLYMPIA Starting Monday (Aug. 27),
anglers must release any steelhead
they intercept on a large portion of
the Columbia River under a new
emergency rule adopted by the
Washington Department of Fish and
Wildlife (WDFW).

The new rule, prompted by a sharp
decline in projected returns of
upriver summer steelhead, will be in
effect until further notice from Buoy
10 at the mouth of the Columbia River
to Highway 395 in Pasco.

Ryan Lothrop, Columbia River fishery
coordinator for WDFW, said monitoring
at Bonneville Dam now indicates that
110,300 upriver steelhead will return
to the Columbia this year, down from
182,400 fish projected before the
fishing season began.

The new projection is similar to the

last year, when fishery managers from
Washington and Oregon closed
steelhead fishing in the Columbia and
many of its tributaries.

Although the new emergency rule does
not close fisheries in area
tributaries, that may be necessary in
the weeks ahead, Lothrop said.

Many factors are clearly taking a

WDFW recently prohibited fishing for

That night closure will remain in
effect from Buoy 10 to Pasco, and at

Hood Canal (Marine Area 12) will open to recreational shrimp fishing from noon to 4 p.m. on Aug. 21 and 22. In addition, the daily catch limit will be increased to 100 shrimp per person from the typical 80 shrimp per person for these two days in Hood Canal. Earlier this summer, the Hood Canal area was open for seven days for recreational harvest but roughly 19,000 pounds of quota remain, said Don Rothaus, WDFW shellfish biologist. This is a great opportunity for shrimp harvesters to enjoy some time on the water, Rothaus said. We dont typically get many late-season openings in Hood Canal like this. Rothaus noted that the northern and southern areas of Hood Canal have yielded the best catches this season. The central section of the canal hasnt been as productive as in previous seasons. The only Puget Sound waters currently open to spot shrimp harvest are Marine Areas 4 east of the Bonilla-Tatoosh line and Marine Area 5 (western Strait of Juan de Fuca).
