WDFW closes Willapa Bay and tributaries to all salmon fishing

The Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife has closed all fishing in Willapa Bay and its tributaries including the Willapa River. The closure went into effect at midnight on Friday, September 21 and includes all salmon species until further notice.

Fish and Wildlife initially considered only shutting off Chinook retention and leaving the Coho fishery open, but the department decided to take no chances. They're hoping the closure will allow more fish to reach the gravel and hatchery, calling it "incredibly precious" that they get that far up. "We've got a significant issue with Chinook," Chad Herring from WDFW said. "While people would be out fishing for Coho there would be encounters in the marine area and more importantly the freshwaters and that would have a resulting impact."
