The Kalama River is reopening for hatchery spring chinook fishing this Saturday, June 28 through July 31 after state Fish and Wildlife have determined that spawning escapement goals will be achieved.
Fishing will be open from the boundary markers at the mouth to 1,000 feet below fishway at the upper salmon hatchery.
Daily limit is six hatchery chinook, and only two may be adult fish with a minimum size limit of 12 inches. Release all other salmon. Barbless hooks are required to fish for salmon and steelhead.
Starting Aug. 1, fishing will open for hatchery fall chinook and hatchery coho.
