Reiter Ponds area of Skykomish River reopens Saturday for steelhead

After meeting the summer steelhead escapement goal, state Fish and Wildlife will reopen the closed section of Reiter Ponds on the Skykomish River starting this Saturday (June 12).

The area of the river opening is from 1,500 feet upstream to 1,000 feet downstream of the Reiter Ponds Hatchery outlet.

There is a night closure and anti-snagging rule for this fishing area, and fishing from a floating device is prohibited.

Public access through the hatchery grounds is allowed between 6 a.m. and dusk, but Saturday’s fishing opener will not begin until 8 a.m.
