Skokomish River in Hood Canal sport hatchery chinook fishery begins Aug. 3

The Skokomish River salmon fishery dispute has also finally found its way to an agreement between the state and Skokomish Tribe.

The hatchery chinook fishery on Skokomish River from Highway 106 Bridge upstream will be open starting Aug. 3 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays each week through Aug. 25.

Fishing is closed on other days to avoid gear conflicts with tribal fisheries and reduce impacts to wild chinook.

The sport fishery above the Highway 106 Bridge starts with a two-day opening Aug. 3-4, and closed Aug. 5-8 before reopening weekly beginning Friday, Aug. 9.

The hatchery chinook fishery downstream from the Highway 106 Bridge to the mouth will be open daily Aug. 3-25.

Anglers must use single-point barbless hooks, and a night closure and anti-snagging rules will be in effect.

Fishing on the Skokomish River from mouth to the Highway 106 Bridge is as follows:

Aug. 3-25 – Daily limit is two salmon, release chum and wild chinook. Anglers must keep the first two legal salmon and stop fishing for the day.

Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 – Daily limit six salmon, up to four adult salmon may be retained. Release chum and chinook.

Oct. 16 until further notice – Daily limit six salmon, up to four adult salmon may be retained. Release chinook.

Fishing on the Skokomish River from the Highway 106 Bridge to the Highway 101 Bridge is as follows:

Aug. 3-25 – Open to salmon fishing Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays each week. Daily limit two salmon; release chum and wild chinook. Anglers must keep the first two legal salmon and stop fishing for the day.

Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 – Open to salmon fishing Sept. 15, 19, 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 and Oct. 1-Oct. 15. Daily limit six salmon, up to four adult salmon may be retained. Release chum and chinook.
