The hot chinook salmon fishing off the northern coast has prompted state Fish and Wildlife to reduce the daily catch limit from two to one chinook starting Saturday, Aug. 10.
This includes all marine areas off La Push and Neah Bay, where the daily limit will remain two salmon but only one may be a chinook.
Through Aug. 4, anglers fishing off La Push have caught 1,157 chinook or about 70 percent of the chinook catch quota of 1,650.
At Neah Bay, anglers have caught 4,572 chinook, which is about 93 percent of the catch quota of 4,900.
Salmon fishing will remain open in both areas through Sept. 22.
Anglers can also keep two additional pink salmon, and can only keep hatchery-marked coho.
