Changes to fishing regulations on the Naselle and San Poil Rivers

Action: The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission approved changes to two sportfishing rules during its January 2014 meeting in Olympia. The changes - which take effect March 7, 2014 - applied to two rivers:

Naselle River: Fishing from a floating device equipped with an internal combustion motor is prohibited year round from the Highway 4 Bridge upstream to the Crown mainline (Salme) Bridge.

San Poil River: The daily limit for walleye is raised from eight fish to 16 fish to address an overpopulation of walleye in this tributary to Lake Roosevelt. This fishery does not open until April 1, 2014.

Effective Dates: March 7, 2014

Information Contact: Fish Program (360) 902-2700.
