The wild Chinook bag limit has been reduced this year. As part of the 2 salmon/steelhead bag limit per day, anglers can retain 1 adult wild Chinook per day and only 2 for the season.

Gear restrictions in place upstream of river mile 2.2 have been extended through Nov. 15. Anglers will want to check for any updates prior to fishing.

The bag limit reduction and continued gear restrictions are in place to reduce harvest on older age wild Chinook.
