North Fork Nooksack River closed to fishing
A portion of the North Fork Nooksack River will close to fishing for all species on December 1st. The closed section is from the yellow post located at the upstream most corner of the hatchery grounds, approximately 1,000 feet upstream of the mouth of Kendall Creek, downstream to the Mosquito Lake Road Bridge. The reason for the closure is due to the fact that the Kendall Creek Hatchery in recent years has been unable to secure sufficient eggs from returning hatchery winter steelhead to meet basin production goals. Closure of the fishery is needed to collect sufficient fish to meet egg-take needs. The portion of the river will remain closed until further notice. for more information conact the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife.
