Kalama River anglers must release spring chinook starting Feb. 15

All spring chinook will need to be released on the Kalama River from Friday, Feb. 15 until further notice.

The spring chinook return forecast is 700 fish this season, which was the same forecast as last year, but the the actual return was only 600.

The hatchery needs to meet spawning goals before any type of fishery can reopen on the Kalama.

The Kalama River will remain open for hatchery steelhead fishing.
