Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife FISHING RULE CHANGE
600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091

November 4, 2020

Adult salmon daily limit increased in Drano Lake

Action: Increases the adult salmon portion of the salmon and steelhead daily limit to two fish; the hatchery steelhead limit remains one per day.

Effective date: Nov. 5 through Dec. 31, 2020

Species affected: Salmon

Location: Drano Lake

Rule: The salmon and hatchery steelhead daily limit is six fish; up to two adults may be retained, of which no more than one may be a hatchery steelhead.

Reason for action: Little White Salmon National Fish Hatchery has achieved the 2020 fall Chinook broodstock collection goal, allowing the adult daily limit to be increased for additional harvest opportunity.

Additional information: All other permanent rules published in the 2020-2021 Sport Fishing Rules Pamphlet remain in effect. Anglers are reminded to check the fishing rules pamphlet and for emergency rule changes before hitting the water.

Information contact: Matt Gardner, District Fish Biologist, (360) 906-6746
