Hoh and South Fork Hoh rivers to re-open to fishing

Action:  Re-open the Hoh and South Fork Hoh rivers outside of Olympic National Park waters to fishing. 

Fishing regulations are as listed in WDFW's 2017-18 "Sport Fishing Rules" pamphlet.

Effective date:  Oct. 21, 2017. 

Species affected:  All species. 

Location:  The Hoh and South Fork Hoh rivers outside Olympic National Park.

Reason for action:  Recent rainfall has increased flows, allowing salmon to migrate upstream to spawning areas.   

Further Information: The Olympic National Park is also re-opening waters in the Hoh River within the Park's boundaries at the mouth of the river. For Park regulations, visit: https://www.nps.gov/olym/planyourvisit/fishing.htm
