2015 Washington Coastal Salmon Season Set

Pacific Fisheries Management Council Announces 2015 Washington Coast Sport Salmon Fishing Season

Coastal King SalmonA mark-selective Chinook season north of Cape Falcon begins May 30 off the Columbia
River and Westport, and May 16 off La Push and Neah Bay. This fishery ends June 12,
or when 10,000 marked Chinook are caught in all port areas combined.

The recreational fishery north of Cape Falcon opens to all salmon on June 13 and ends
September 30 or when Chinook or coho quotas are reached. The preseason coho quota
for all port areas combined is 150,800. For details, please see the season descriptions on
the Council website at http://www.pcouncil.org.

Washington and Northern Oregon (North of Cape Falcon)

Fisheries north of Cape Falcon (near Nehalem in northern Oregon) depend largely on
Columbia River stocks. Columbia River fall Chinook and coho returns are expected to
return at high levels. However, fisheries were constrained by measures to conserve
Chinook stocks in Puget Sound and coho stocks in the Queets River and the interior
Fraser River Basin.

North of Cape Falcon, there is an overall non-Indian total allowable catch of 131,000
Chinook and 170,000 marked hatchery coho.
