Wind River spring chinook season change
OLYMPIA -- The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has
modified an open fishing area on the Wind River.
From June 1 through June 15, the Wind River from the High Bridge to the lower
boundary markers below Carson National Fish Hatchery is open to salmon fishing. The
daily limit is two salmon. The portion of the river between Shipherd Falls and the High
Bridge will remain closed to provide a larger sanctuary for spring chinook. An earlier
WDFW announcement said the area would be open for salmon fishing.
