Boat motor rule change for section of Yakima River sport fishery

State Fish and Wildlife has announced that internal combustion motors on boats will be allowed from Aug. 1 through Oct. 31.

All game fish species – Selective Gear Rules in effect (see definition on Page 19 of the 2011-12 Fishing in Washington rules pamphlet).

Fishing for steelhead and salmon remains closed. This rule change expires when the season for trout and other game fish closes on Oct. 31 (see Page 86 in rules pamphlet).

This is to provide additional angling opportunity from boats in this section of the Yakima River.
