Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife FISHING RULE CHANGE
600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091

February 13, 2014

Sport clam season opens early at Dosewallips State Park

Action: Opens the sport clam fishing season early.

Effective date: March 1, 2014 until further notice.

Species affected: All clams.

Location: Dosewallips State Park. This beach is located in Jefferson County on Hood Canal.

Reason for action: Surveys indicate that the clam population on this beach can support a season of the same length as last year. The earlier opening date provides a more continuous recreational clamming opportunity in the Hood Canal area, particularly with this year?s closure of nearby Point Whitney Tidelands. Oyster season at Dosewallips State Park remains open year-round.

Information contact: Alex Bradbury, WDFW Port Townsend Field Office, (360) 302-3030, ext. 302.

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.
