Small section near the Hoko River’s hatchery on Olympic Peninsula closed to fishing beginning Monday

A section of the Hoko River west of Clallam Bay will be closed to fishing from Monday (Dec. 8) through Jan. 15 to allow hatchery crews more space for taking steelhead broodstock.

The area closed to fishing from boats and both banks on the Hoko River is from the Makah tribal hatchery fish ladder downstream 100 feet.

According to a state Fish and Wildlife news release, this will provide hatchery employees to work safely in the area, and allow steelhead to aggregate outside the ladder and move up into the facility to ensure egg take requirements are met.

The closed area along the southwest bank (opposite the hatchery) is between the posted signs.
