Washington’s 2018-19 salmon fishing season finalized

State and tribal co-managers have agreed on the 2018 fishing season. The 2018-19 salmon fisheries, developed by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and treaty tribal co-managers, were finalized during the Pacific Fishery Management Council’s meeting in Portland, Ore. The season limits fisheries in areas where southern resident killer whales are known to feed. Information on recreational salmon fisheries in Washington’s ocean waters and the Columbia River is available at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/northfalcon/. Details on recreational salmon fisheries will be provided in the 2018-19 Washington Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet, scheduled to be published in late June.
