Action: Closes salmon fishing. 

Effective date: Jan. 19, 2021, until further notice.  

Species affected: Salmon. 

Location: Marine Area 10.

Reason for action:  Anglers have reached nearly half (282 of 579) of this fishery’s allowed natural-origin Chinook encounter guideline within the first 10 days of the season. WDFW, in consultation with fishing advisors for Puget Sound, has decided to temporarily close this fishery until later in the season in order to preserve future fishing opportunities and to limit impacts to natural-origin Chinook. 

Additional information: Year-round piers; Bremerton Boardwalk, Illahee State Park Pier, Seacrest Pier, and Waterman Pier remain open for salmon fishing.  

Information contact: Fish Program, 360-902-2700.
