In-season Management Actions:
July 21 Effective 12:01AM Friday, July 24, the bag limit in the La Push and Neah Bay areas changed to 2 salmon, one of which can be a Chinook, plus 2 pink.

Quota remaining from May-June Chinook MSF was transferred on an impact-neutral basis to the summer all-species fishery.  The revised chinook guidelines by area are:

Columbia River Area - 15,750
Westport Area - 29,295
La Push Area (including late fishery) - 2,835
Neah Bay Area - 8,820

August 12 Effective 12:01 AM Saturday, August 15, the bag limit in the Westport area changed to 2 salmon.

Effective 12:01 AM Friday, August 14 through 11:59 PM Saturday, August 15, the bag limit in the Neah Bay area changed to 2 salmon, one of which may be Chinook, plus 2 pink.

A trade between the recreational and non-Treaty troll fisheries was approved; 3,000 coho were transferred from the Area 3 non-treaty troll fishery at an impact neutral rate to the Area 4 recreational fishery recreational fishery, resulting in a SELECTIVE coho quota for the Area 4 recreational fishery of 1,700. The impact-neutral equivalent of 1,000 Chinook were transferred from the recreational fishery in Areas 1 and 2 to the non-Treaty troll fishery.

Resulting recreational chinook guidelines are: 15,225 in the Columbia River area (a reduction of 525) and 28,320 in the Westport area (a reduction of 975).
