Fishing Quota Met For Klamath Salmon
Beginning Wednesday, anglers fishing within a large stretch of the Klamath River will no longer be able to keep salmon 22 inches or longer, according to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.Anglers will have caught the quota of 183 adult salmon 22 inches or longer by Wednesday, the state said. Reaching the quota means anglers must not keep any salmon longer than 22 inches. The area affected is from the Highway 96 bridge in Weitchpec to 3,500 feet below Iron Gate Dam.The Klamath River area downstream of the Highway 96 bridge had previously met its quota.The quota on the Trinity River is 183 adult chinook from the confluence with the Klamath River upstream to Cedar Flat, and 183 adult chinook from Cedar Flat to the Old Lewiston bridge.Those two fisheries are still open, the state said. Anglers can call 800-564-6479 to find out which areas of the Klamath and Trinity rivers are still open.
