Klamath "spit fishery" to close
Klamath - The Department of Fish and Wildlife has advised of an impending closure of the Klamath River spit fishery beginning September 1st.
Sub quota’s for adult Chinook salmon will have been met by sundown, August 31st. This triggers a closure of the spit within 100-yards of the mouth of the Klamath the following morning.
Once all quotas have been met, anglers may still fish but will have to release any Chinook over 22 inches. The Klamath River above the confluence of the Trinity River will remain open until 702 adult Chinook are caught. For more information on the impending closure, call: 800-564-6479
