Effective dates: Immediately through Dec. 31, 2012.
Species affected: All species.
Location: From 150 feet upstream to 150 feet downstream of the Wishkah adult attraction channel/outfall structure within the posted fishing boundary.
Daily limits: Trout, minimum size 14" and daily limit 2 fish. Other game fish, statewide minimum size and daily limits.
Salmon, Oct. 1 to Dec. 31, minimum size 12" and daily limit 6 fish, of which up to 2 may be adults. Release chinook, wild coho, and chum.
Reason for action: The Grays Harbor Poggie Club, which operates the hatchery for WDFW, has developed an ADA accessible fishing area adjacent to the adult attraction channel (fish ladder) outfall structure thereby providing opportunity for an ADA access only sport fishery without substantively impacting the current open access sport fishery.
Other information: Anglers should refer to the Sport fishing Rules 2012/2013 pamphlet edition, FISHING IN WASHINGTON for other ongoing fishing opportunities.
