    They open the first Saturday in June. Read it again. The August date is when the night closure goes into effect.

    I'll admit our regs are difficult to decipher at times. This forum is helpful, but not everyone here gives correct information, especially reagrding wolves :rolleyes: I believe CB above is correct, but read again and confirm what he has offered you.

    And it's only a couple of weeks away now. It's been another long spring with now river fishing. I think there'd be riots in the streets if they extended the closures another two months into August.

    If you don't have a Philadelphia lawyer with you and a lap top, you don't know what the regulations are in Washington. Just fish a single barbless (small) hook, don't use a net, don't keep anything, don't lift the fish out of the water and hope for the best........;)

    Oh soooo true! I don't fish Washington as I'm located minutes from the Rogue River but to get your Game Department reg changes into my e-mail in box. Reg's change (almost) once per week. Oregon's will 'change' but pretty infrequently.

    Last major changes involved fishing on the Columbia River.
