Sol Duc River Closes To Fishing Near Sol Duc Hatchery

 


Action: Close to fishing the Sol Duc River from 200 feet Downstream of the hatchery outfall creek upstream to the concrete pump station at the Sol Duc Hatchery.

Effective Dates: June 18, 2015, until further notice.

Species affected: All species

Location: Sol Duc River, from 200 feet Downstream of the Sol Duc Hatchery outfall creek upstream to the concrete pump station at the Sol Duc Hatchery.

Reason for action: Low water is causing a delay in migration past the hatchery, resulting in greater vulnerability of the wild spring/summer chinook to fishing pressure. This is likely to remain a problem until stream flows increase in the fall. The Quileute Tribe is implementing a similar closure to subsistence fishing in the vicinity of the hatchery. This closure is needed to protect wild chinook.

Information Contact: Mike Gross, District 16 fish biologist, (360) 249-1210; David Low, Area fish biologist, (360 249-1216.
