September 25, 2023
Action: Closes all fishing.
Effective date: Sept. 27, 2023, until further notice.
Species affected: All species.
- Stillaguamish River: From the mouth, including all sloughs downstream of Marine Drive (south of Stanwood) upstream to forks.
- Stillaguamish River, North Fork: From mouth to North Fork Falls.
- Stillaguamish River, South Fork: From mouth upstream (including upstream of Granite Falls).
Reason for action: Preliminary monitoring data indicate the Stillaguamish River sport fisheries are close to their allowable Chinook encounters and are in danger of exceeding the allowable total should these fisheries continue. Fisheries may reopen for other species once Chinook salmon have finished active spawning.
Additional information: Anglers can be notified of all in-season rules changes as they are announced by signing up for WDFW regulation updates at wdfw.wa.gov/about/lists.
