Hoh to close to chinook fishing on Monday
OLYMPIA -- The Hoh River will close to sport chinook salmon fishing from 12:01
a.m. Monday (Aug. 11) through Aug. 31, the Washington Department of Fish and
Wildlife announced today.
The closure is necessary so non-Indians will not exceed their share of the fish.
Anglers should check the 1997 Fishing in Washington regulations pamphlet for
additional rules before fishing in the Hoh.
