Lower Entiat River opens for hatchery chinook this Friday

The good times continue to roll on this summer, and a decent number of hatchery kings returning to the Lower Entiat River will soon open it for fishing from July 25 through Sept. 30.

Anglers can keep hatchery-marked (adipose fin-clipped) adult and jack summer in the Lower Entiat River upstream from the Alternate Highway 97 Bridge near the mouth of the Entiat River to the upper Roaring Creek Road Bridge immediately below the Entiat National Fish Hatchery.

The daily limit is two hatchery chinook with a minimum size of 12 inches. All other fish must be released. Selective gear rules (single barbless lures or flies, knotless nets, no bait allowed) apply in the fishery. No boats with motors are allowed and a night closure is in effect.
