WDFW to close the lower Samish River to all fishing
Action: Close part of the Samish River to all fishing.
Effective dates: Oct. 10, 2017, until further notice
Species affected: All species.
Location: From the mouth (Bayview–Edison Road) to I-5 Bridge.
Reasons for action: The return of fall chinook to the Samish Hatchery is projected to be below the number needed to meet egg take goals. Closing the fishing season in the lower Samish River will increase the number of hatchery fish available for broodstock and ensure future hatchery returns.
Other information: The season will be reopened when egg take needs are projected to be met, or when the chinook return is over. Please refer to http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations/ for further information on seasons.
Information Contact: Mill Creek Regional Office, 425 775-1311

WDFW seeks volunteers for Puget Sound sportfishing advisory group
OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking volunteers to serve on its Puget Sound sportfishing advisory group.
People interested in serving on the advisory group have through Oct. 31 to apply.
About 10 qualified individuals will be chosen to serve on the advisory group for 2018 and 2019. Those selected will provide guidance to WDFW on issues affecting recreational fisheries in Puget Sound for salmon, rockfish and other marine fish species.
The advisory group meets five or six times a year, with most meetings scheduled February through April during the annual salmon season-setting process, known as North of Falcon. Members also are expected to communicate fishery information and policy decisions to sportfishing groups in their areas, said Ryan Lothrop, a WDFW fishery manager.
"Advisors are an important link between the department and the sportfishing community," Lothrop said. "We're looking for people who have first-hand knowledge of marine and freshwater recreational fisheries and the ability to communicate their ideas to fishery managers and fellow anglers."
Appointments become effective in January 2018. Advisors do not receive direct compensation for their work.
Interested individuals do not have to be affiliated with an organized group, and current members of the advisory group may be reappointed. Any group or individual also can nominate a candidate.
Letters of interest or nominations must include the following information:
Name, address, telephone number and email address of the person to be considered.
Relevant experience and reasons for wanting to serve as a member of the advisory group.
Effectiveness in communication.
Name and contact information for any individual or organization submitting a nomination.
Applications must be received by Oct. 31, and may be submitted at PugetSoundRecFishingGroup@dfw.wa.gov or Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Attn: Ryan Lothrop, P.O. Box 43150, Olympia WA, 98504-3150. For more information, contact Lothrop at (360) 902-2808.

WDFW issues permit to Cooke Aquaculture
to transport juvenile Atlantic salmon
OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has authorized Cooke Aquaculture to transport about 1 million juvenile Atlantic salmon from the company's hatchery in Rochester, Wash., to an existing net-pen facility in Puget Sound.
Eric Kinne, manager of WDFW's hatchery division, said the transport permit is not related to the company's Cypress Island net-pen facility near the San Juan Islands, where one of Cooke's pens collapsed on Aug. 19 and released tens of thousands of Atlantic salmon into Puget Sound and nearby waters.
Following the net pen collapse, Gov. Jay Inslee directed that no permits be issued for new aquaculture net pens while the incident was being investigated. However, current laws and administrative rules do not give state regulators the authority to deny Cooke's permit to move healthy fish into an existing net pen. The Governor's Office asked Cooke to withdraw its permit application and expressed disappointment that the company chose to proceed while thousands of escaped Atlantic salmon remain unrecovered.
Cooke, which operates net pens at eight locations in Puget Sound, applied in late August for permission to move about 1 million 2-year-old smolts from the hatchery to its Rich Passage facility in south Puget Sound. The move is expected to take place through the fall.
WDFW issued the fish transport permit late Monday, Oct. 2, after working to ensure the company's facilities at Rich Passage met structural, water quality, and fish health requirements. Staff from WDFW and the departments of Natural Resources and Ecology visited the net-pen site last week. Ecology staff inspected the facility and did not find violations of the current water quality permit. Divers hired by DNR examined the net pens and support structures below the surface at Clam Bay along Rich Passage. The inspection did not yield grounds to deny the permit.
The Cypress Island incident remains under investigation, and efforts continue to recover the fish that escaped. About half of the 305,000 fish from the collapsed pen are thought to have escaped.

[09/25/17]   Went down to the shop today and noticed a native fisherman hauling in his nets, in 30 minutes they must have hauled in over 800 pounds of salmon. Thanks King County and the Port for locking your fishermen out of the most popular fishing pier and meeting place in Seattle.

Snohomish, Skykomish and Snoqualmie rivers
to close to pink salmon fishing
Action: Closes the Snohomish River, including the Skykomish and Snoqualmie rivers, to the retention of pink salmon.
Effective Date: Sept. 22, 2017, until further notice.
Species affected: Pink salmon.
Reason for action: The rule is necessary to protect returning pink runs to the Snohomish River Watershed. In-season run-size assessments conducted by state and tribal co-managers indicate that pink run sizes are below the escapement goal in the Snohomish basin.
Other information: The Skykomish and Snoqualmie rivers are tributaries to the Snohomish River and will also close to the retention of pink salmon. The rivers will still be open to fishing for other species of salmon, with a daily limit of three coho. The Wallace River, another tributary to the Snohomish River, remains closed to all fishing. Check the 2017-18 Fishing Rules Pamphlet for specific regulations.
Information contact: Mill Creek Regional Office: (425) 775-1311.

[09/18/17]   SNOHIMISH RIVER PINK SALMON

Pink salmon fishing in the Snohomish river has improved over the past week. We have had a number of customers that have caught their three fish limits. There are fish throughout the system at the present time. Fishing has not been a slam dunk by any means and you have to be at the correct spot at the right time with the right presentation to be successful. These fish seem to be moving though the system fairly fast and are not pooling up by any means. As far as gear goes it is just the standard fare. Folks in the tidal section of the river are tossing Buzz Bombs or Rotators as well as weighted pink jigs in marabou, rabbit or squid bodies. Up river Dick Nite spoons or jigs have been the norm.

We have not even come close to the peak of the run, we should see good fishing though about the 20th of September before we start to see the fishery decline. By then we should be seeing good numbers of Coho salmon to take their place.

[09/18/17]   MARINE AREA 9 (SEATTLE & BREMERTON) SALMON FISHING

This seasons coho fishery in Marine Area 10 has been quite good. We have been seeing some very good fishing for the past week and a half. The area is open for retention on hatchery coho as well as pink salmon.
The fishing has been good on the Edmonds side with most anglers fishing just below the Area 9/10 line down to the oil docks and south toward Boeing Creek.
We have been seeing a mix of smaller delayed release resident coho in the 3 - 5 pound range as well as some ocean fish with most in the 7 - 9 pound range with an odd fish to 15 pounds. There are still a few pinks being caught in the 4 - 6 pound range with an odd fish to 10 pounds. There are still a few Chinook being caught upwards of the mid twenties. All Chinook must be released.
Coho have been in the 25 - 45 foot zones fist thing in the morning and dropping down into deeper waters later in the morning where the 70 - 90 foot zones have been holding the fish.
We should see good fishing through the end of the month.

[09/18/17]   LAKE WASHINGTON COHO OPENS SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 16TH, 2017

Coho fishing on Lake Washington will open up this Saturday Septermber 16th, 2017 and will run through October 31st. The lake will be open north of the Hwy 530 Bridge and east of the Mountlake Bridge. Anglers will have a 4 Coho limit with a 12 inch min. size and can be either wild or of hatchery origin.
As of the 13th there have been 6,416 Coho counted through the locks and WDFW is expecting a run of 20,378. So, we are about 1/3 of the way into the migration. With that number of fish already into the lake we should have some reasonable fishing. The earlier ruturning fish are also more willing biters than those that return later.
There are many techiniques that take these fish and not a single one seems to be more productive than another. These are very fickle biters and one technique that was productive one minute is not the next. So make sure to have a number of offerings and a range of colors to intice a bite.
Plugs such as Brads wigglers and Yakima Bait Mag Lips have been fairly consistant producers. Colors such as Flour. Red, Flour Red Herringbone or Fire Tigers are a go to.
Fish are generally close to the surface at first light and it can be quite productive just to flat line your offerings. As the day goes on you will have to get down deeper as the light increases.

[09/13/17]   The Port of Seattle can spend millions so that driver can have a clean place to wipe their ass and talk about how much money they've made for the day, but they can't repair a damn FISHING PIER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and back off from the closure of Fish On by taking away my business and clients that span state wide and nine countries that visit on a yearly basis.

I guess this minority business doesn't meet your criteria

Airport May Finally Rehab Disgusting Bathroom Shared by Hundreds of SeaTac Drivers

by Heidi Groover • Sep 12, 2017 at 9:39 am


Taxi drivers at the airport who are members of Teamsters Local 117 have protested their working conditions. HG

After driver protests and complaints, the Port of Seattle may spend $6.5 million to rebuild the dilapidated bathroom and waiting area shared by 1,000 taxi and ride-share drivers at the airport.

Port staff are requesting authorization from the port commission to rehab a mold-covered bathroom for taxi drivers and build a new bathroom for drivers for services like Uber and Lyft.
Here's a look at what the bathroom—which Port Commissioner Fred Felleman calls an "embarrassment"—looks like right now:

The current bathroom used by taxi drivers at the airport. HG

That dump is shared by about 400 taxi drivers, who sometimes wait hours to pick up passengers leaving the airport. Nearby, hundreds more Uber and Lyft drivers share porta potties and sometimes also use the taxi drivers' bathroom. In recent weeks, taxi drivers protested their working conditions, including the bathroom and fees they pay to the port. They say those fees prevent them from making a living wage.

The two new restroom facilities will cost $2.3 million to design and $4.2 million to build. Back in 2015, the port planned to rehab the building and spent some money on design. But the CEO at the time—who has since resigned amid a scandal—tabled the project and wanted the taxi company using the lot to pay for the rehab instead, according to airport spokesperson Perry Cooper. The taxi company Eastside for Hire agreed to spend $300,000 improving the building. That never happened, though. Instead, the port changed course and decided it should spend more on the facility, according to Cooper.
The new project has been "on track" since this spring, but recent protests spurred the port's interim executive director to speed up the project, Cooper said.
Some money has already been OK'ed for the rehabilitation, so today's vote will determine whether the port will spend the final $4.4 million needed. That money will come from garage parking fees, tenant leases, and other sources in what's known as the Airport Development Fund.
The port commission meets at noon.

WDFW names new Enforcement Program chief
OLYMPIA – Steve Bear, a longtime law enforcement officer and former head of the Alaska Wildlife Troopers, was sworn in today as the new chief of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) Law Enforcement Program.
Bear was selected to lead the program following a nationwide search. He brings over 25 years of law enforcement experience to his new role, including 10 years as either director or deputy director with the Alaska Wildlife Troopers.
"Steve brings a wealth of natural resource knowledge and a fresh perspective to the department," said WDFW Director Jim Unsworth. "The Enforcement Program is crucial to fulfilling our legal responsibilities and protecting the state's fish and wildlife. I am confident Steve will meet those objectives with professionalism and vigilance."
For Bear, his personal experience has underscored the need for responsible stewardship of wild resources.
"Growing up hunting, fishing, and trapping, I developed a strong sense of just how important natural resources are to everyone," Bear said. "What draws me to this line of work is the idea of protecting those resources for this generation and future generations."
Bear replaces Steve Crown, who left WDFW in 2016 to head the Wenatchee Police Department. WDFW Capt. Chris Anderson served as interim chief while the search for a replacement was conducted. As chief, Bear will oversee 156 personnel, including 130 commissioned officers.
