WDFW discuss Grays Harbor salmon fishery
The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission heard comments on Saturday from nearly a dozen people about a proposed plan to develop a new policy for Grays Harbor salmon fisheries.
The policy, which will set the direction for resource conservation and catch allocations, is the focus of ongoing public meetings in western Washington.
Public meetings will continue into January to discuss and develop a new draft policy for managing salmon fisheries specifically in Grays Harbor.
Residents are invited to attned a Grays Harbor Advisory Committee on Tuesday from 6-8 pm at WDFW’s office in Montesano.
Regional fish program manager Ron Warren said WDFW will develop a range of policy options that will be discussed during the December commission meeting in Olympia.
The commission is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the draft policy options during its January meeting in Olympia and make a final decision at its February meeting in Olympia.
