Grays Harbor salmon the topic today in Olympia

December 6, 2013

The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission will accept public comments on draft policy options for Grays Harbor salmon during a meeting scheduled today and tomorrow in Olympia.

Also at the two-day meeting, the public will be able to comment on proposals that would prohibit the use of internal combustion motors while fishing on a portion of the Naselle River.

Over the past month, state fishery managers have been working with a citizen committee and the public to develop draft options for a new policy to address conservation and catch allocation for Grays Harbor salmon fisheries.

The goal is to develop a policy that helps ensure spawning goals are met for wild salmon returning to the basin and to give anglers and commercial fishers a clearer picture of what fishing opportunities they can expect each year.
