Kennedy Creek mouth opens for chum salmon
Action: Opens salmon retention
Effective date: Nov. 5 through Nov. 30, 2022
Species affected: Salmon
Location: Kennedy Creek (Mason Co.) from the mouth (500 yards east of the northbound Hwy. 101 Bridge) to northbound Hwy. 101 Bridge. CRC (754)
Rule: Salmon; minimum size 12”. Daily limit is two. Release wild Chinook salmon and wild coho salmon.
Reason for action: Chum salmon returns have exceeded preseason projections and are large enough to allow recreational chum salmon retention while still meeting escapement goals.
Additional information: Chum salmon retention is also allowed in portions of Marine Area 13 beginning Nov. 5. Please see the Fishing Rule Change posted at https://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations/emergency-rules/chum-retention-opens-deep-south-sound-and-carr-inlet-2022-11 for additional information regarding Marine Area 13.
