Min. size 12”. Daily limit four coho. Release all salmon other than coho.

Species affected: Salmon.

Reason for action: This area of the Cascade River will close to all fishing Sundays and Mondays to avoid gear conflicts with treaty fisheries that will be conducted on these dates.

The coho return is sufficient to allow for the recreational salmon season to extend through Oct. 23.
