Baker Lake closing for sockeye salmon fishing

Baker Lake will finally close for sockeye on Sept. 12, after what became a very successful summer fishery.

This includes all areas of Baker Lake upstream of the log boom barrier in front of upper Baker Dam to the mouth of the Baker River.

State Fish and Wildlife says sockeye are no longer of sufficient quality to attract interest by anglers, and are moving toward spawning areas.
