WDFW hosts public meeting on Naselle hatchery operations

OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is hosting a public meeting Nov. 23 to discuss this year’s salmon returns and hatchery operations in the Willapa Bay area.

The meeting will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., Nov. 23, in the library of the Naselle High School, 793 State Route 4, Naselle.

State fishery managers will provide an overview of this year’s salmon returns in the region. They will also discuss how operations at the state’s Naselle fish hatchery could be affected by a new Willapa Bay salmon management policy adopted this summer by the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission. The policy is designed to restore depleted runs of wild chinook salmon in Willapa Bay and its tributaries, including the Naselle River where the hatchery is located.

Persons with disabilities who need to receive this information in an alternative format or who need reasonable accommodations to participate in WDFW-sponsored public meetings or other activities may contact Dolores Noyes by phone (360-902-2349), TTY (360-902-2207), or email (dolores.noyes@dfw.wa.gov).
