State agency seeks input from anglers
September 28, 2023
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is hosting a series of online public meetings this fall to discuss development of the 2023-24 coastal steelhead fishing season.
Fishers and anyone interested in steelhead management and conservation along the Washington coast can attend the first of these public meetings beginning at 6 p.m. on Oct. 25.
The primary goal of the first town hall meeting will be to solicit fishery proposals from the public for the upcoming season. Fishery managers with WDFW will also present information on the steelhead management framework, trends in coastal steelhead abundance and environmental indicators, upcoming forecasts, and summarize the 2022-23 season.
For more information on this and other upcoming virtual town halls, or to provide comments or suggestions online, please visit WDFW’s coastal steelhead webpage at wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/management/steelhead/coastal.
