Elfendahl road closed in Tahuya State Forest
The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will close the road leading to the Elfendahl Pass staging area and trailhead in Tahuya State Forest the week of September 16 – 20. The road will be closed for crews to replace a fish passage culvert that is currently blocking salmon from spawning up river.
Signs Of Fall
Hunters take field as salmon move in from the ocean. The sun is setting earlier, and the leaves are beginning to turn color- signs of another change of season. Fall is in the air, and hunters are heading out for the first major hunting seasons of the year.
Ilwaco, Westport Anglers
Anglers will be allowed to retain both wild and hatchery coho salmon beginning Sunday, Sept. 1, in ocean waters off Ilwaco (Marine Area 1) and Friday, Sept. 6, off Westport (Marine Area 2). Those changes will not affect ocean salmon fisheries off LaPush (Marine Area 3) and Neah Bay (Marine Area 4), where anglers will continue to be allowed to retain hatchery coho, but must release wild coho, said Doug Milward, ocean salmon manager for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW).
