Upper Wheeler Reservoir to close for all fishing

Action: Close Upper Wheeler Reservoir to all fishing.

Effective dates: Effective immediately.

Species affected: Trout and all other game fish.

Location: Upper Wheeler Reservoir, located approximately 11 miles southwest of the town of Wenatchee (Chelan County).

Reason for action: Public access was obtained for this season through a temporary Land Use Agreement, thus Upper Wheeler Reservoir could only be opened to "fly fishing only" under an emergency rule change. This rule has expired.

Information contacts: Travis Maitland, District 7 fish biologist, (509) 665-3337; Jeff Korth, Region 2 Fish Program manager, (509) 754-4624.

Fishers must have a current Washington fishing license, appropriate to the fishery. Check the WDFW "Fishing in Washington" rules pamphlet for details on fishing seasons and regulations. Fishing rules are subject to change. Check the WDFW Fishing hotline for the latest rule information at (360) 902-2500, press 2 for recreational rules.
