Lake Washington closed to October coho fishers
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife recently announced that Lake Washington will be closed for salmon fishing through Oct. 31, and Lake Sammamish will be off-limits for salmon fishing from Oct. 2 though Nov. 30 of this year. The closure is attributed to a low coho salmon run and hatcheries’ inability to collect enough fish to meet “egg-take” goals. However, if the run increases in a few weeks, the lakes will be re-opened. Call District Biologist Aaron Bosworth at (425) 775-1311, extension 102, for more information.
