A section of Tokul Creek to open sooner than expected for steelhead fishing

LOsteelhead_mh4987 (2)

The popular steelhead fishing area at Tokul Creek – a tributary of the Snoqualmie – will open sooner than expected.

The area from the Fish Hatchery Road Bridge up to the posted cable boundary marker below the hatchery intake will open at 7 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 9 through 5 p.m. Feb. 15 for hatchery steelhead, trout and other gamefish.

The area is closed daily from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m., and has anti-snagging rules in effect.

This part of Tokul Creek is usually closed in the permanent regulation booklet until Jan.15 to allow for winter steelhead broodstock collection at the hatchery, but the facility has attained their egg taking goals.

Tokul Creek is open from the mouth to the downstream edge of the Fish Hatchery Road Bridge that is listed in the fishing rules pamphlet.

The entire section of Tokul Creek will close on Feb. 16 to protect wild steelhead.
