More chinook at Westport

Effective Aug. 18, anglers fishing off Westport can keep up to two chinook as part of their two-salmon daily limit. All ocean areas are open to salmon fishing seven days per week, but wild coho must be released in all four areas.

Ron Warren, fisheries policy lead for the state Department of Fish and Wildlife  said the previous daily limit of one chinook off Westport was designed to ensure the fishery would remain open the entire season. Ocean salmon fisheries are scheduled to continue through Sept. 30 in Mariner Areas 1 and 2, and through Sept. 21 in Marine Areas 3 and 4.
