Fishing news: Rule changes impact nearby fishing spots

Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) recently announced changes that impact fishing at nearby fishing spots.

Whatcom Creek, from the mouth to the markers below the footbridge downstream of Dupont Street, has been closed to all fishing from November 15th until further notice. This closure is due to the fact that the return of chum to Whatcom Creek is currently below the number needed to meet egg-harvesting goals for 2018 and the closure is necessary to ensure that broodstock are available for future hatchery returns. The fishing season will be reopened if egg-harvesting needs are projected to be met.

The fishing season for gamefish at Padden Lake has been extended through January 6th, 2019. WDFW has stocked an additional 1,100 catchable-size rainbow trout to facilitate enjoyable fishing through the holidays. Padden Lake will be closed to fishing beginning January 7th, 2019, and will reopen the fourth Saturday in April (April 27th). No internal combustion motors are allowed on Padden Lake.
