Change to daily limit for Chinook salmon in Neah Bay

Action: Anglers may retain only one Chinook as part of their two-salmon daily limit in Neah Bay beginning July 8.

Effective date: July 8, 2019.

Species affected: Chinook salmon.

Location: Marine Area 4, Neah Bay.

Reason for action: The Neah Bay subarea landed 28 percent of its chinook guideline for the season through July 1. Reducing the daily limit for Chinook should increase the amount of time the area can remain open under its guideline.

Additional information: Waters of Marine Area 4 east of a true north-south line through Sail Rock are closed. Regulations for other ocean areas remain unchanged.

Anglers are reminded to always check for emergency rule changes prior to fishing. Rule changes can be found on the website at https: //fortress.wa.gov/dfw/erules/efishrules/ or by calling the fishing hotline at 360-902-2500.

Information contact: Region 6 office, 360-249-4628.

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.
