Salmon Fishing in Area 3 closes Sunday night

OLYMPIA -- Salmon fishing in Marine Area 3, from the mouth of the Queets River to Cape Alava (including La Push), will close at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife announced today.

Department biologists said the quota of 800 coho will be reached by Sunday.

Fishing opened July 21.

The Marine Area 3 fishing season was short to protect low runs of wild coho returning to several Olympic Peninsula rivers.
