Anglers must release chinook salmon in the Strait, can keep pink and hatchery coho

Although the chinook fishery is winding down, anglers can continue to fish for pink and hatchery coho, which are starting to hit their peak, Pattillo said.

"The fishing for coho and pink salmon is excellent and anglers should enjoy a good season through September," Pattillo said.

Salmon fishing in marine areas 5 and 6 remains open seven days a week for hatchery coho and pink salmon. The daily limit is two salmon, plus anglers may keep two additional pink salmon. All wild chinook and wild coho must be released. All chum must be released.
