Action: Increases the adult salmon daily limit to three fish.

Location and effective dates:

Species affected: Salmon.

Rule: Salmon min. size 12”. Daily limit 6. Up to 3 adults may be retained.

Reason for action: The current return of coho salmon to the Klickitat River has exceeded preseason expectations and additional fish are available for harvest.
