State allows boat limits during Baker Lake sockeye fishery

The state is allowing each angler aboard a vessel on Baker Lake to continue “to deploy angling gear until the daily limit of sockeye has been retained for all licensed and juvenile anglers onboard.”

The rule change is effective through Sept. 4, and applies only for sockeye salmon.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife said the return of Baker Lake sockeye is expected to far surpass escapement goals, making the additional sockeye salmon available for harvest.

All other fishing regulations remain in effect as listed in the 2012/2013 Fishing in Washington sport fishing rules pamphlet. Anglers are reminded to release all bull trout. The two-pole endorsement is allowed for this fishery.
