Hi Guys,

Here is the decision.

1. Keep our current closures and fisheries in place at this time.
2. Continue to monitor the species composition in the QIN fishery on the Chehalis River side.
3. Recommend to the Director to open the Wynoochee River and the remainder of the Humptulips River for steelhead directed fishing on December 16th. Retention of hatchery coho will be allowed.
4. Continue to track the QIN fishery catch composition. If a shift in species composition in the QIN fishery is observed on the Chehalis River, re-open steelhead fishing in areas with returning hatchery steelhead.
5. Continue to track spawning and project total spawners each week. If the projected number of spawners exceeds the spawning goal, re-open both gamefish and coho salmon fisheries.

Please call if you need more info.

Dazed and confused.............the fog is closing in
