Umatilla National Forest is closed
(News release from the Forest Service)

With persistent extreme hot and dry conditions, active large wildfires, limited firefighting resources and concern for public safety, forest officials have temporarily closed the entirety of the Umatilla National Forest effective immediately.

The objective of the closure is to proactively protect public and firefighter safety as the Forest continues to actively suppress large wildfires on the Forest, while also responding to new smoke reports. Hot and dry conditions have challenged firefighters in suppression efforts battling the Lick Creek and Green Ridge Fires on the Pomeroy Ranger District. Additionally, on July 15 the Elbow Creek Fire emerged on the Walla Walla Ranger District, rapidly growing and threatening nearby communities. Overnight, humidity levels have remained extremely low, allowing fires to spread actively. These conditions have created an unprecedented potential for extreme fire spread and intensity. With three active large wildfires on the Umatilla National Forest, compounded by multiple active large wildfires burning across the region, firefighting resources are stretched. Forest officials have implemented the closure for public and firefighter safety.

A full Forest closure means that the public is prohibited from entering any part of Umatilla National Forest at any time, including National Forest lands, roads, trails and recreational facilities. Access on county, state or federal roadways will still be open.

Forest Service personnel will attempt to reach as many people as possible to begin vacating campsites and informing individuals who are camping in the Forest currently. The public should cancel any plans for visiting the Umatilla National Forest for the next several weeks. This is a temporary closure and the Forest will continually assess conditions and lift the closure once the unprecedented conditions moderate.

Violating closures and fire restrictions is a violation that carries a mandatory appearance in federal court, punishable as a Class B misdemeanor with a fine of up to $5,000 for an individual or $10,000 for an organization, or up to six months in prison, or both.

A detailed map and description of the closure area is available on the Forest website and at any Forest office. Closure barriers and signs will be posted on the ground.

As of this morning still holding the south end of the fire good.  We now have a good perimeter around the fire.  Getting some depth in some of the southern lines.

You might want to start thinking about the option to turn your tags in. That whole unit might be charcoal here in the next few days.

My wife's family. They're in the outskirts of Pomeroy and are fine. It was a little questionable a week or so ago but that didn't last long.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Whatís the path forward? My dad has a mt view arch tag. The fire has been contained basically on the border of lick and mt. View and from talking to firefighters and looking at info online itís sounding promising we wonít have a fire in the mt view unit.  Once we get some rain and the fire continues to burn out they should open up the access to the national forest, correct? I guess we would just be hoping that occurs around 1st of sept.

Whatís the likelihood of wdfw keeping the 4-0 area closed into September?

And I hear about people turning back in their tags and the arguments that follow, but how does that work? My dad wonít turn his tag in but Iím curious. Is it literally you just turn your tag back in and you get your points back?

You have up until 2 weeks before the start of your hunt to turn your tag back in to WDFW and they will reinstate your points for that category. I may be incorrect here, but I believe you don't gain a point for this year in doing so.
