Icicle River will reopen to salmon fishing

WENATCHEE – The Icicle River salmon fishery will reopen June 21 after being interrupted last week by the theft of 200 broodstock fish from a federal fish hatchery.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife ordered the closure to preserve remaining fish for broodstock.

Since then, more than 1,000 fish have returned to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery, providing enough eggs to generate future runs.

The Icicle River fishery, which closed June 14, will reopen at 12:01 a.m. June 21 until July 31 from 400 feet upstream of the mouth to 500 feet downstream of the hatchery rack. Night closure and non-buoyant lure restrictions will be in effect.
