Other Description
chinook salmon
Rule to Change:
Columbia River above Wells Dam open to harvest two chinook during the summer months.
New Rule Proposal:
Keep fishery open to one hatchery clipped chinook.
Why the change is needed:
The wild chinook runs going up the Methow River are stressed and should not be harvested in the mainstem Columbia when the chances of catching them in the Brewster Pool are so high. This is one of few wild runs left in the state. Lets protect them!

WDFW Rule Proposal Recommendation

Not Recommended for further consideration     Reference ID: DFW939187

Reasons not recommended for further consideration

    Salmon, goes through the North of Falcon process
    This proposal deals with salmon. Salmon seasons are set through the Pacific Fisheries Management Council/North of Falcon process. This process adopts a cohesive set of rules for sport and commercial salmon fisheries, from ocean fisheries to those inside Puget Sound including freshwater fisheries each year during March and April.

    Your proposal will be provided to the manager(s) responsible for this species so that it can be considered during the appropriate rulemaking process.
