Lack of coho forces more fishery closures

Low or late coho runs continue to have an effect on area fisheries. The state Department of Fish and Wildlife today announced several closures.

These waters are being closed, the state said, because coho runs are lower than expected and hatcheries might not be able to collect enough eggs to meet egg-take goals.

The fisheries are expected to reopen if egg-take needs are met.

Here are the most recent closures:

Lake Washington: Saturday through Oct. 31

Lake Sammamish: Saturday through Nov. 30

Quilcene River: Close the river from mouth to the electric weir at Quilcene National Fish Hatchery; Saturday through Oct. 31.

Quilcene/Dabob Bay: The closure covers the portion of Marine Area 12 north of a line true east from Point Whitney to the Toandos Peninsula; Saturday through Oct. 15. Also, the area will reopen under Area 12 regulations beginning Oct. 16.
