Willapa Bay

The 2016 Willapa Bay commercial salmon fishery will re-open via emergency regulation as of 12:01 a.m. November 16, 2016 and remain open through 11:59 p.m. November 18, 2016.  The commercial fishery will open again as of 12:01 a.m. November 21, 2016 and remain open through 11:59 p.m. November 25, 2016.

Data collected during the spawning ground surveys indicate that the chum return is larger than the preseason forecast, which ensures that conservation and management objectives are met.
