Major changes to the Skok regs this year but it's not going to work. This fishery brings out every digenerate in the state, easy access to the river and the fish. When you have to post rules to pick up after yourself and add a human wate management section on specific rivers I'll go fish somewhere else.
SKOKOMISH RIVER (Mason Co.) from
mouth to Hwy. 106 Bridge
ALL SPECIES - Aug. 1-Nov. 30: night closure, anti-snagging rule, and single-point barbless hooks required.

We each must clean up after ourselves and pets. Refer to Human and Pet Waste Advisory (page 18).

fish hooked inside the mouth may be retained. Anglers must retain the

Note: You can only retain fish hooked inside the mouth, isn't that what your supposed to do!
