Fishing To Close On Newaukum River And All Tributaries


August 1, 2015

Action: Closes the Newaukum River and all tributaries

Effective Dates: Aug. 11, 2015, until further notice

Species affected: All species

Location: Newaukum River (Lewis Co.) and all tributaries

Reason for action: Low waters are reducing the available holding habitat for spring chinook and concentrating them into fewer and smaller pools. This in turn makes them more vulnerable to fishing pressure. Increased water temperatures and higher potential encounter rates subject these fish to stress, injury, or death.
