Skokomish and Samish river fishing issues are two of the major topics at public meeting Tuesday in Olympia

One of the main topics of discussion at a public salmon season setting meeting last Friday was the salmon fisheries on the Skokomish River in Hood Canal and Samish River in northern Puget Sound.

State Fish and Wildlife is currently discussing how to deal with snagging of fish, litter and other issues that pose a negative effect on some rivers, which might include more stringent fishing restrictions.

Larry Phillips, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist and other fisheries officials will attend a public meeting 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 19 at the Natural Resources Building, 1111 Washington St. S.E., Room 172 in Olympia.

Sport anglers will also be able to discuss the preseason salmon forecasts, and potential salmon fisheries in other rivers in south Puget Sound like the Puyallup and Nisqually.
