Adult coho daily limit increased on the Kalama River

by WA Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Action: Increases the adult coho portion of the salmon daily limit to six hatchery fish.

Effective date: Nov. 11 through Dec. 31, 2021

Species affected: Hatchery coho salmon.

Location: Kalama River, from the mouth to 1,000 feet below the fishway at Kalama Falls Hatchery.

Rule: Salmon: Minimum size 12 inches. Daily limit six. Up to six adults may be retained, of which up to three may be Chinook. Release all salmon other than hatchery Chinook and hatchery coho.

Reason for action: The current return of hatchery coho salmon to the Kalama River has exceeded preseason expectations. Broodstock collection goals for Kalama River programs are on track to be met and additional fish are available for harvest.

Additional information: All other permanent rules published in the 2021-2022 Sport Fishing Rules Pamphlet remain in effect.
