Action: Reopens the Fortson Hole section of the North Fork Stillaguamish River to fishing.

Effective dates: Jan. 24 through Jan. 31, 2014.

Species affected: All species.

Locations:

  • The North Fork Stillaguamish River reopens from the Swede Heaven Bridge downstream approximately 4 river miles to the French Creek confluence.
  • The Cascade River, a tributary of the Skagit River, remains closed from the Rockport-Cascade Road downstream to the mouth.

Reasons for action: Closures on both rivers were necessary to allow the Whitehorse and Marblemount hatcheries to collect sufficient winter steelhead broodstock to meet egg take needs. The Whitehorse Hatchery has now collected sufficient winter steelhead broodstock to reopen the North Fork Stillaguamish River.
