The Coho salmon season begins tomorrow in a couple of North Central Washington spots.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife says anglers can start keeping catches of Coho on Thursday between Priest Rapids Dam and Rocky Reach Dam, though there are different limits depending on where you are.

The same is true of the Icicle River from the closure signs located 800 feet upstream of the mouth of the river to 500 feet downstream from the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery Barrier Dam and the shoreline markers where Cyo Road intersects the Icicle River at the Sleeping Lady Resort to the Icicle Peshastin Irrigation Footbridge.

Revised Columbia River areas, effective dates, and rules: 

  • Priest Rapids Dam to Rock Island Dam: Oct. 1 through Oct. 15, 2020. Daily limit six (6) salmon. Up to two (2) may be adult Chinook and up to two (2) may be coho. Minimum size 12 inches. Release sockeye.
