Quinault Tribal Fishery Schedule http//www.quinaultindiannation.com/fishingregs.htm
This is the longest set of the year for the QIN Tribal Fisheries and when coupled with two days at the first of next week it is a long stretch. I observed the QIN nets yesterday and appeared to be a mixed bag with either a net full or some. The fish were starting to stage hard before the rain and are in substantial numbers but with this rain we have had a rather large movement of fish to the areas upstream of tidal water. It has been a mix of red & colored fish along with bright fish. Water temperature above tide water is down to 54 but still holding 58 to 60 mid tide water.
Rain is here and hit the Ten Day Forecast & River Flows to get a better idea of what is coming.
