    Chinook harvest closes in Marine Area 10
    Action: Closes harvest of hatchery chinook in Area 10, except at Sinclair Inlet and year-round fishing piers.
    Effective Date: 12:01 a.m. Friday, Aug. 8, through 11:59 p.m. Friday, Aug. 15, 2014.

    Location: Marine Area 10 (Seattle/Bremerton), except Sinclair Inlet, Elliott Bay Fishing Pier at Terminal 86, Seacrest Pier, Waterman Pier, Bremerton Boardwalk, and Illahee State Park Pier.
    Reason for action: Preliminary estimates indicate that landed catch of chinook will meet the preseason expectations. The chinook fishery is closed to control impacts on stocks of concern and ensure compliance with conservation objectives and agreed-to management plans.
    Other information: Daily limit remains at 2 salmon. Release chinook and chum. Shilshole Bay remains closed. Elliott Bay remains closed, except for the specified Elliott Bay Fishery. Anglers should consult the Fishing in Washington, Sports Fishing Rules pamphlet for specific regulations for Sinclair Inlet, Elliott Bay Fishery, and year-round fishing piers.

    I saw a bunch of people today and have been seeing them on other days for the last two weeks fishing Sinclair inlet. Not sure how the catching has been but everyday the amount of people gets to be more and more. Interestingly enough I have not seen the tribe putting their nets out, not yet at least.
