Skykomish River hatchery chinook fishery to close soon

A lack of chinook returning to the Wallace River Hatchery has prompted state Fish and Wildlife to close the Skykomish River from the mouth upstream to the Wallace River for chinook salmon retention July 23-31.

Chinook brood stock collection at the hatchery is well behind the goal of 3,200 fish. As of July 18, only 597 chinook brood stock had been trapped at the hatchery.

The closure of the selective hatchery chinook sport fishery is necessary in order to fulfill brood stock collection requirements.

If the brood stock collection goal is met prior to July 31, the Skykomish River selective chinook sport fishery may resume.
