Skokomish River sport fishing season extended through mid-December
The Skokomish River in southern Hood Canal will stay open through Dec. 15 for salmon and gamefish.

Terminal gear may be used – including hooks, weights, lures or baits – and line must not be within 25 feet of tribal gillnets effective Nov. 1 through Dec.15 from mouth to the Highway 101 Bridge.
Catch-and-release fishing is open for gamefish. Salmon fishing is open with a six salmon daily limit and up to four adults may be kept.
Anglers must release chinook. Night closure, anti-snagging rule and single point barbless hooks are required through Nov. 30.
Gamefish fishing is closed from Highway 101 Bridge up to the Bonneville power lines.
