Those planning a salmon fishing trip to Ilwaco will now be able to keep up two chinook daily in the ocean beginning Saturday, Sept. 6. Originally when the season started back in June and up to this point anglers have been allowed to keep one chinook daily.

Anglers may also keep both hatchery and wild coho starting Saturday, Sept. 6.

There is a two salmon daily limit in place now for the entire coast. All ports are open daily at Ilwaco, La Push, Westport and Neah Bay.

Anglers fishing east of the Bonilla-Tatoosh Line at Neah Bay must release all chinook.

Through Aug. 31, Ilwaco anglers have landed 77 percent or 10,130 of the 13,100 chinook catch quota, and 66 percent or 60,998 of the 92,400 coho quota.

Neah Bay and La Push are open daily through Sept. 21, and Westport and Ilwaco are ope daily through Sept. 30. A bubble fishery at La Push will reopen from Sept. 27 through Oct. 12.
