Upper Klickitat River opens for hatchery spring chinook fishing

More salmon fishing opportunities begin tomorrow (June 13) as the Upper Klickitat River opens for hatchery adult spring chinook

Anglers may keep up to two hatchery adult spring chinook as part of the salmon daily limit on the Klickitat River upstream to boundary markers below the salmon hatchery.

This affects the fishing area of Klickitat River from 400 feet upstream from #5 fishway (located about one-half mile upstream from the Fisher Hill Bridge) to the boundary markers below Klickitat Salmon Hatchery.

The Klickitat Salmon Hatchery is expected to meet its escapement goal.

The daily limit is six salmon of which no more than two may be adults. Wild chinook must be released. This will match rules already in effect below Fisher Hill Bridge (located about 2 miles upstream from the mouth).

Anglers are reminded there are closed waters from Fisher Hill Bridge to 400 feet upstream from #5 fishway and from the boundary markers below Klickitat Salmon Hatchery to the boundary markers just upstream of the hatchery. The section upstream from the salmon hatchery remains closed to fishing for salmon.

Beginning August 1, the Klickitat River will revert to fall salmon regulations.
