The lower stilly is open for Salmon from Sept 1 to Dec 31. So its closed to taking salmon now, but open for trout, steelhead, and other game fish.

I have fished the lower river many times for steelhead and cutts in mid summer, and never had any trouble.

Now before anyone accuse me of 'poaching', I return all fish that are native or out of season.

The way the WDFW writes the rules, that's the only sane way to fish. If we had to fish rivers like they closed if a species could not be caught, we wouldn't be fishing much.
