A statement released this week regarding fishing on Lake Quinault:
Lake Quinault is to remain closed to all non-tribal fishing. The closure is effective until further notice, according to Quinault President Fawn Sharp.
“The Quinault Business Committee has made the decision in a unanimous action, effective immediately” said Sharp. “We cannot stand by and allow our sensitive aquatic ecosystems to continue to be diminished. This action has been taken to protect the lake and is an emergency measure to protect the health and safety of all our communities.”
“We are very concerned about water quality in the lake,” she said.
