7-day salmon fishing opens on state coast

July 23, 2010 

The state Fish and Wildlife Department says anglers will be able to fish for salmon seven days a week along the entire Washington coast beginning today.

The department says the new rules will increase fishing opportunities at Westport, La Push and Neah Bay, which had been restricted to five days a week.

The season for chinook and coho will continue into September.
