HOQUIAM, Wash. — Fish and Wildlife investigators are looking for the people responsible for an illegal gillnet set across the Humptulips River. Sergeant Matt Nixon says the net was reported by a concerned citizen.
Investigators removed the net and found 11 steelhead, 10 of which Nixon says were "spoiled and unsalvagable."
All but one of the fish was legal to catch with hook and line, however Nixon says fishing on the river with gillnet is illegal. A reward may be offered for information about people doing gillnet fishing on the Humptulips River.
