November 15, 2019

Drano Lake fisheries reopen

Action: Returns Drano Lake to permanent rule as listed in the 2019-20 Washington Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet.

Effective date: Immediately.

Species affected: All species.

Location: 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: Drano Lake was closed to angling in late September to increase the number fall Chinook available for broodstock at Little White Salmon National Fish Hatchery. Hatchery managers have recently indicated that broodstock collection is on track to meet program goals and the fishery closure is no longer needed.

Additional information: Please see the 2019-20 Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet for angling rules specific to Drano Lake.

Information contact: Matthew Gardner, district fish biologist, 360-906-6746.
