Portion of Wallace River opens to all fishing
Action: Open all fishing
Effective date: Oct. 22 through Nov. 30, 2022
Species affected: All species
Location: Wallace River (Snohomish Co.) from the mouth (farthest downstream RR bridge) to Wallace Falls.
Reason for action: With forecasted rain and increasing flows predicted and most of the Chinook salmon spawning complete in the Wallace River conditions are improved for allowing fishing to resume in Wallace River.
Additional information: Fishing rules outlined in the 2022 Rules and Regulation pamphlet apply, with two changes. Coho salmon retention will be non-selective (hatchery and wild retention allowed in Wallace River) with daily limit of 2 coho salmon, and the section from 200 feet upstream of the hatchery water intake to Wallace Falls, which were closed to salmon fishing in the pamphlet, will open for coho retention in addition to the area downstream of the intake.
Anglers can be notified of any in-season rules changes as they are announced by signing up for WDFW Regulation Updates at wdfw.wa.gov/about/lists.
