South Puget Sound salmon discussion scheduled March 19

OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has scheduled a public meeting March 19 in Olympia to discuss this year’s salmon returns and potential fishing seasons in southern Puget Sound.

The meeting is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in room 172 of the Natural Resources Building, 1111 Washington Street S.E., in Olympia.

Those attending the meeting will have an opportunity to talk to fishery managers about the pre-season forecasts and potential recreational salmon fisheries in south Puget Sound, particularly in the Puyallup, Nisqually and Skokomish rivers.

WDFW added the meeting to the salmon season-setting process known as North of Falcon, which involves representatives from federal, state and tribal governments and recreational and commercial fishing industries.

A meeting schedule and more information about the salmon season-setting process for Puget Sound, the Columbia River and the Washington coast is available on WDFW’s website at
