Fourth Klamath Salmon Fishing Quota Nearly Met, Catch Will Be Subject to Size Restriction

North coast anglers are about to meet their seasonal salmon quota in another popular spot, triggering new restrictions on the Trinity River fishery. Monitoring efforts show that anglers above Cedar Flat on the Trinity River will have caught their quota of 183 adult fall-run Chinook, 22 inches or longer, by sundown on Friday, Oct. 21. After the quota is met, anglers will still be able to fish in this area but must release any Chinook longer than 22 inches.

The quota on the Trinity River is 183 adult Chinook from the confluence with the Klamath River up to Cedar Flat. This fishery is still open at this time.

Anglers may keep track of the status of open and closed sections of the Klamath and Trinity rivers by calling 1 (800) 564-6479.
