Kalama Re-Opens

Posted on 27th June 2014 at 16:05

Washington Fish and Wildlife says that they expect to meet the hatchery escapement goal for Spring Chinook on the Kalama River, so that river will re-open to hatchery Chinook fishing, starting tomorrow and going through the end of July. Starting tomorrow, the Kalama will be open to Spring Chinook fishing, going from the mouth to the boundary markers that are one thousand feet below the upper salmon hatchery. The daily limit will be six hatchery Chinook, with a maximum of two adults. The minimum size limit is 12 inches. All other salmon except hatchery Chinook must be released, and barbless hooks are required. Starting on August first, the Kalama will open for hatchery Coho, as well. Get full details by going to the WDFW website, or by contacting your local outfitter.
