Area 4-B salmon season closes Sunday evening
OLYMPIA -- The salmon fishing season in Marine Area 4 (Neah Bay) east of the Bonilla-Tatoosh line will close an hour after sunset Sunday, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife announced today.
The area, known to anglers as 4-B, is closing because its quota of 2,000 coho will be harvested by that time, department biologists predict.
