Action: Salmon season is extended through Oct. 31, 2023. Use of bait including eggs is allowed in the area open for salmon.
Effective date: Immediately through Oct. 31, 2023.
Species affected: Salmon.
Snohomish River from the mouth to confluence of the Skykomish and Snoqualmie rivers:
Immediately through Oct. 31, 2023: Minimum size is 12 inches. Daily limit is four (4) including no more than two (2) coho. Release Chinook and chum. Bait is allowed. Night closure and anti-snagging rules are in effect. Single-point, barbless hooks are required.
Reason for action: Preseason forecast of pink and coho returns are sufficient to open the lower portion of the river for two additional weeks. In addition, there are sufficient Chinook impacts remaining in the season to allow this extended opening targeting coho.
