Reasons for action: This rule change is in effect to close the waters above and below the adult fish trap to keep anglers a safe distance from the operating trap.

Other information: Research on Salmon Creek began in the fall of 2008 and will continue through the winter to determine fish passage through the newly constructed roughened channel under the highway 99 bridge.
