Marine Area 9 salmon anglers limited to shoreline fishing July 31; Chinook retention closes

Action: Closes Marine Area 9 (Admiralty Inlet) to chinook retention, and restricts salmon anglers to shoreline fishing only.

Effective Date: Effective 12:01 a.m., Monday, July 31, 2017

Species affected: Chinook salmon.

Location: Puget Sound, Marine Area 9 (Admiralty Inlet Area).

Reason for action: Preliminary estimates through Thursday indicate that anglers had caught 4,642 fish (83 percent) of the chinook quota of 5,599 fish for Marine Area 9. WDFW anticipates reaching the quota for this fishery by the end of the day Sunday. The changes to the chinook fishery are in compliance with conservation objectives and agreed-to management plans.

In addition, Marine Area 9 will remain open to salmon fishing only from the shoreline. Anglers will not be permitted to fish for salmon from a boat or other floating device starting Monday (July 31). The reason for this action is to protect expected low runs of wild coho and pink salmon returning to the Skagit and Stillaguamish rivers.

Other information: Beginning July 31, the daily limit will be 2 salmon; chum, chinook and wild coho must be released. The catch estimates and quotas for Marine Area 9 can be found at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/reports_plants.html.

For specific regulations, anglers should consult the 2017-18 Washington Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet available online at http: //wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations/.

Information contact: Ryan Lothrop, (360) 902-2808 or Mark Baltzell, (306) 902-2807.

Anyone fishing area 10?

I fished Jeff Head and Richmond Beach solo Sunday morning.  Lots of bait around, particularly on the east side, although didn't see much in the way of chinook.  In fact, didn't see a net fly that I thought was a chinook.  Seems to be quite a few resident coho around.  Given all the bait, I'm sure the chinook will hold up there when the time comes.

Fished today for 3 hours and caught a chunky 6 lbs coho and a pink. Lost two others and threw back a small fish. Not seeing huge bait balls like years past, they seem to be more scattered.  Heading back out tomorrow morning with my dad and my buddy is coming from tricities tonight to fish for salmon for the first time. It's going to be a crapshow with all the boats, today there were quite a few out there.
