Two-king Limit Starts Thurs. On Ocean

Oregon and Washington managers are tweaking salmon limits so anglers can keep a second Chinook on the ocean starting tomorrow, July 8.

The two-salmon bag remains in effect (release wild coho), but instead of only being able to retain a single king and single hatchery coho, there’s enough Chinook available that an additional one can be kept.

The rule change affects waters between Oregon’s Cape Falcon and the Canada border, and includes Washington’s Areas 1, 2, 3 and 4.

“I think it’s going to be excellent,” says Doug Milward,  a WDFW ocean salmon manager working on the rule change notice now. “They’re out there in good numbers.”
