Public input

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking public comment on proposed rules for this year’s recreational and commercial salmon fishing seasons. For more information, visit the current rule-making activity webpage.

Recreational fisheries

The department is considering amending current recreational fishing rules resulting from stakeholder recommendations made during the 2022 North of Falcon process.

There are several other agencies involved in this rule making in association with the Pacific Fisheries Management Council season setting process including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) Fisheries division (National Marine Fisheries Service). These agencies, as well as WDFW, all provide input and/or take part in the PFMC/North of Falcon season-setting meeting.
