Remaining Drought Closures Lifted In Yakima Basin

Action:  Lifts closures in the Yakima Basin.

Effective date:  Immediately.

Species affected:  All game fish (trout, whitefish, etc.).


Ahtanum Creek, including the North Fork and Middle Fork
Little Naches River
Teanaway River, including the West, Middle and North forks
Reason for action:  Cooler weather and recent precipitation have increased flows in these tributaries eliminating the need for the drought-related fishing closures adopted in mid-July.

Additional Information:  The fishing season in all three locations is open through Oct. 31.  See pages 64-66 in the 2015-16 fishing rules pamphlet for trout minimum size, daily limit and gear rules.
