Neah Bay salmon fishing to close Wednesday night

OLYMPIA—Sport salmon fishing in Neah Bay (Marine Area 4 east of the Bonilla-Tatoosh Line) will close at 11:59 p.m. Wednesday (Aug. 19), the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife announced today.

The Neah Bay fishery is being closed because WDFW managers expect anglers to catch the area's quota of 8,000 coho by tomorrow.

The Columbia River's Buoy 10 sport salmon fishery remains open until Aug.23. Westport and Ilwaco reopen for a one-day sport salmon fishery on Sept. 3. Marine Areas 5 and 6 also remain open.
