Adult salmon daily limit reduced in Drano Lake

Action: Reduces the adult portion of the salmon daily limit to one in Drano Lake.

Effective Dates: Effective Sept. 29, 2018 until further notice.

Species affected: Salmon.

Locations: Drano Lake, in the waters downstream of markers on point of land downstream and across from Little White Salmon National Fish Hatchery and upstream of the Highway 14 Bridge.

Reason for action: The estimated number of chinook returning to the pool above Bonneville Dam was recently reduced from preseason forecasts. A reduced daily limit is needed to ensure that additional fish are available for broodstock collection at Little White Salmon National Fish Hatchery. Fishery managers will continue to coordinate with hatchery managers and monitor the progress of hatchery returns.

Other information: The daily salmon limit remains 6 fish total, of which only one may be an adult. Drano Lake remains closed to night fishing for salmon and steelhead and closed to retention of steelhead.
