All other salmon species have no minimum size.

Campfire restriction

PORT ANGELES — Due to the combination of increased dry conditions and rising temperatures, the Olympic National Forest and Olympic National Park are implementing fire restrictions that will only allow campfires in established fire rings in designated areas.

Restrictions will be effective Sunday.

All backcountry and dispersed area campfires will not be allowed, including the use of charcoal grills or other equipment that creates ash.

Gas or propane camp stoves with a shut-off valve or lever that extinguishes the flame immediately are permitted in these areas but should be operated well away from flammable vegetation and forest litter. Extreme caution is urged with any open flame.

Campfires on the beaches of Olympic National Park will not be permitted under this restriction.
