Upper Trinity River Chinook Salmon Quota Projected Oct. 24 10/22/2014


The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) projects that:

The Upper Trinity River anglers are expected to meet their catch quota of 681 adult fall-run Chinook salmon above Cedar Flat by sundown on Friday, Oct. 24.

Starting Saturday, Oct. 25, anglers may still fish but can no longer keep adult Chinook salmon over 22 inches in the Trinity River above Cedar Flat. Fish tags may be removed and returned to CDFW. Anglers may still keep a daily bag of three Chinook salmon under 22 inches.

The fall-run Chinook salmon quota on the Lower Trinity River is 681 adult Chinook salmon from the confluence with the Klamath River up to Cedar flat. This sub-area quota has not been met yet and anglers may retain one adult Chinook salmon as part of their three fish daily bag limit.

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