  • Action: Open Tokul Creek for trout and other gamefish.
  • Effective date: 7:00 a.m, Jan. 9 through 5:00 p.m. Feb. 15, 2014.
  • Species affected: Trout, hatchery steelhead and other game fish.

Location: Tokul Creek from the Fish Hatchery Road Bridge upstream to the posted cable boundary marker below the hatchery intake.

Reasons for action: This section of Tokul Creek is closed in the permanent regulations until Jan.15 to allow for winter steelhead broodstock collection at the Tokul Creek Hatchery. The Tokul Creek Hatchery facility has now met its egg take goals for winter steelhead allowing for expanded fishing opportunity in Tokul Creek.

Other information: Tokul Creek remains open from the mouth to the downstream edge of the Fish Hatchery Road bridge, as listed in the fishing rules pamphlet. Tokul Creek is closed to fishing daily from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Anti-snagging rules are in effect. All sections of Tokul Creek will close Feb. 16, 2014 to protect wild steelhead.
