by WA Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

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

Locations and effective dates:

Species affected: Salmon.

Rule: The salmon daily limit is 6 fish; min. size 12", 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.
