Here is the Coastal Freshwater CR102 for the Rec seasons. Read away and see what you all think.



Good Afternoon,


The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is proposing rule changes for recreational salmon fishing: Coastal Freshwater. The agency developed these changes through a pre-season planning process known as “North of Falcon” that includes a series of public meetings with federal, state, tribal and industry representatives and other concerned citizens. Rules based on the North of Falcon planning process change from year to year to reflect resource availability and achieve conservation goals.


The CR-102 and proposed WAC can be viewed and downloaded at:


In accordance with RCW 34.05.320, a public hearing will be held on Tuesday, July 7, 2015, at 11:00 a.m., at the Region 6 Fish and Wildlife Office, Conference Room, 48 Devonshire Road, Montesano, WA, 98563.


Please also be aware that to reduce paper and associated costs, from now on this information will be provided through email and public news release.
