A portion of Marine Area 4 will close to salmon fishing Saturday, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife announced a short time ago.

The closures covers the waters of Makah Bay east of the 124 degrees, 41 minutes line, which is approximately from Waatch Point to Anderson Point.

The department’s news release said the Makah National Fish Hatchery is not expected to make egg-take goals for chinook if normally scheduled fisheries occur. A sport closure around the river mouth is necessary.
