Salmon fishing will close Tuesday (Nov. 3) until further notice in Willapa Bay and tributaries except for Naselle, Nemah, and Willapa rivers, and Fork Creek.
State Fish and Wildlife has determined coho returns are falling below preseason expectations.
The Naselle from the Highway 401 Bridge to the Crown Mainline (Salme) Bridge; Willapa from the Highway 6 Bridge to Fork Creek; and Fork Creek remain open to fishing. The daily limit is two salmon. Release all salmon except chum and hatchery coho.
The North Nemah is also open through Nov. 30, but anglers may keep chum only. The daily limit is one chum.
