Change to daily limit for Chinook in La Push

Action: Anglers may retain only one Chinook as part of their two-salmon daily limit.

Effective date: July 15, 2019.

Species affected: Chinook salmon.

Location: Marine Area 3 (La Push).

Reason for action: Chinook retention in adjacent Marine Area 4 (Neah Bay) will end July 14. Adjustment of the Chinook daily limit in Area 3 will help ensure that Area 3 stays within its subarea guideline even if fishing effort shifts from Area 4 to Area 3.
