Stillaguamish River below Marine Drive to re-open to fishing

Action: Reopen the Stillaguamish River downstream of Marine Drive.

Effective date: June 1, 2010.

Species affected: All game fish species.

Additional information: Other sections of the Stillaguamish River previously closed by emergency rule will reopen as listed in the 2010/2011 Fishing In Washington Rules Pamphlet.

Reason for action: The previous closure, which was designed to protect wild winter steelhead, is no longer necessary because most of those fish have spawned and moved out of the watershed.

Information contacts: Jennifer Whitney, District 13 fish biologist, (425) 775-1311; Annette Hoffmann, Region 4 Fish Program manager, (425) 775-1311.

Fishers must have a current Washington fishing license, appropriate to the fishery. Check the WDFW "Fishing in Washington" rules pamphlet for details on fishing seasons and regulations. Fishing rules are subject to change. Check the WDFW Fishing hotline for the latest rule information at (360) 902-2500, press 2 for recreational rules.
