From Fishing and Hunting News.
The fishery will be open under selective-gear rules (barbless hooks, no bait, no scents). Daily limit is two 20-inch hatchery steelhead. Wild steelhead must be immediately released, and can’t be fully removed from the water, according to the statement.
At this hour the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife have not officially released a statment but our sources in Eastern Washington indicated that the following rivers in that area will open for steelhead; Methow and Okanogan rivers open this coming Saturday, The Columbia and Wenatchee on Oct. 22, and the Simmy on Nov. 15.
As always readers, know before you go.
