All weekend: Most of Puget Sound is closed to crabbing, but Marine Area 13 – the waters south of the Tacoma Narrows Bridges remains open. Why not throw out a pot and see what happens? remember, the daily limit is five Dungeness crab. The crab must measure at least 61/4 inches and they must be males before you can keep them.
All weekend: Fall is officially here, but there’s still time to get outside and take a walk under green leaves. You’ll miss them when they’re gone, so get out there – if only for a walk around the neighborhood.
Sunday: The Puyallup River closes to sport angling today at noon to accommodate tribal netting. The river will be closed from the 11th Street Bridge upstream to the city of Puyallup outfall. The Puyallup will reopen to sport angling at noon Tuesday.
