Sockeye fishing extended on Baker, Skagit rivers

The state has reopened sockeye fishing on the Baker and Skagit rivers. The fishery will be open through July 31.

The Baker River is open from mouth to the state Route 20 bridge, while the Skagit is open from the Dalles Bridge in Concrete to a point 200 feet above the east bank of the Baker River.

The state said the sockeye run in the Baker is above the number needed for spawning and hatchery egg-take needs. Because of that harvestable numbers remain to extend the fishery.

The daily limit is two sockeye. Anti-snagging rule and night closure are in effect. Regulations for all other areas of the Skagit River remain in effect as listed in the 2010/2011 Fishing in Washington, sport fishing rules pamphlet.
