Chinook limit rises on the coast

Salmon anglers fishing out of Westport and Ilwaco can now keep two chinook salmon. The chinook limit was increased because anglers still haven’t landed 75 percent of the 20,500 chinook sport fishing quota.

Anglers can now keep two hatchery coho or one hatchery coho and one chinook – or two chinook. Westport anglers can also keep one bonus pink salmon. Westport and Ilwaco are now open to salmon angling seven days a week.
