San Juan Islands to open for additional days of salmon fishing

San Juan Islands (Marine Area 7) will open for three additional days of salmon fishing July 28 through July 30, 2022.

Rule: Open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday only. Salmon daily limit 2, including no more than 1 Chinook. Chinook minimum size 22”. Other salmon, no minimum size. Release wild Chinook, wild coho, and chum.

Reason for action: Catch estimates for the Marine Area 7 summer Chinook fishery indicate that through July 23rd, 2022, 67% of the harvest quota (1,203 of 1800), 25% of unmarked encounters (988 of 3,991) and 23% of sublegal encounters (593 of 2,573) have been reached. This allows space for additional days of fishing to be added to the 2022 summer Chinook season.
