OUTDOORS BRIEF: Dungeness River to close for hatchery coho

OLYMPIA — The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife announced that the Dungeness River will close to fishing for hatchery coho salmon from Wednesday through Nov. 30.

The closure will be from downstream of the hatchery intake pipe. The DFW projects that not enough coho will return to the hatchery to meet egg take goals. Closing the salmon fishing season on the Dungeness will increase the number of hatchery fish available for brood stock and help ensure future hatchery returns.

The Dungeness River will remain open to trout and steelhead fishing. The river may re-open to coho if brood stock needs are met prior to the end of November, when the coho fishery was originally scheduled to close.
