Salmon fishing from Ilwaco and LaPush to close Sunday

OLYMPIA -- Ocean salmon fishing from Ilwaco and LaPush will close at 11:59 p.m. Sunday (Aug. 9), the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife announced today.

The Buoy 10 salmon fishery in the Columbia River and salmon fishing from Westport (Marine Area 2) and Neah Bay (Marine Area 4) remain open.

WDFW biologists said sport fishers were expected to reach the quota of 7,000 coho in Marine Area 1 (Ilwaco) by Sunday night. The 600-coho quota in Marine Area 3 (LaPush) also will be achieved by Sunday.

Westport has a coho quota of 7,400 coho. The Neah Bay coho quota is 8,000 fish.
