Fishing rule changes lifted for Marine Area 10

Action: Marine Area 10 will open as scheduled under permanent rules.

Effective date: Jan. 1, 2020.

Species affected: Salmon.

Locations: Marine Area 10.

Reason for action: Previous closures in Marine Area 10 are no longer needed as a majority of returning chum have entered streams to spawn. Chum encounters with anglers in saltwater are expected to be extremely low, if any.

Additional information: Please see the 2019-20 Washington Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet for additional rules or visit the WDFW website at https://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations.
