Lake Wenatchee sockeye fishery closes Aug. 31

Action: Lake Wenatchee closes for sockeye salmon fishing.

Effective date/time: One hour after sunset Aug. 31, 2010.

Species affected: Sockeye salmon

Location: Lake Wenatchee (Chelan Co.)

Reason for action: By Aug. 31, most of the sockeye currently in the lake will have migrated to the White and Little Wenatchee rivers and will be unavailable to anglers. Continuing the fishery would also increase bull trout impacts.

Other information: Trout and other game fish seasons will continue as described in the 2010/2011 "Fishing in Washington" rules pamphlet.
