Fishing opens early on the Hoh River

Salmon and gamefish fishing opens  May 14 and May 15 on the Hoh River, the state Department of Fish & Wildlife (DFW) has announced.

Fishing will open from the Hoh River from the mouth to the Olympic National Park boundary below the mouth of the South Fork Hoh, and the South Fork Hoh River from its mouth to Olympic National Park boundary.
The DFW said it is opening the Hoh River fishing as the spring chinook fishery operates on a Wednesday through Sunday schedule. The standard opening day of May 16, falls on a Monday this year. As a result of discussions with the Hoh Tribe the starting date was moved to Saturday, May 14 offering a full opening on the weekend for both salmon and gamefish. The remainder of the recreational fishery will proceed as listed in the 2011-12 Fishing in Washington fishing pamphlet.
