CDFW and the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) have announced a joint effort at the Feather River Fish Hatchery in Butte County to aid in offsetting impacts to spring-run and fall-run Chinook salmon resulting from this year’s extreme drought conditions.
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has announced that the spit fishery at the mouth of the Klamath River will close to angling at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 27. Based on CDFW projections of the recreational fall Chinook salmon harvest, anglers will have met the “spit area” adult fall Chinook salmon quota of 15 percent of the total Klamath River Basin allotment by that time.
