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.
