WDFW News – Drano Lake fisheries reopen under permanent rules Jan. 1.

Action: Returns Drano Lake to permanent rule. 

Effective date: Jan. 1, 2019.

Species affected: All species.

Location: In the waters downstream of markers on a point of land downstream and across from Little White Salmon National Fish Hatchery and upstream of the Highway 14 Bridge.

Reason for action: Drano Lake was closed to angling in mid-October due to poor returns of fall chinook to Little White Salmon National Fish Hatchery. Beginning Jan. 1,  fisheries for steelhead and other fish will resume when fall chinook are no longer present.   

Additional information: See the 2018-2019 Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet for angling rules specific to Drano Lake.
