The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has sent out a notice that the Chinook salmon fishery boundaries have been extended on the Entiat River. The new boundaries are from the railroad bridge at the mouth of the river to the Mad River Road Bridge, near Ardenvoir. Fishing opens on August 1st. If you have ever tried fishing on the Entiat for Chinook, you know that there are very few locations that hold salmon, and hopefully the new boundary will provide more opportunities for anglers. River levels on the Entiat, and others throughout the region are very low for this time of year. There are a few holes that are deep enough to hold salmon, though, and I expect them to be hit pretty hard. The daily limit, according to the official release, is six salmon, with a minimum size of 12 inches. All other salmon are to be released. When I think of fishing the Entiat River, I remember the many great days I had fly fishing above Entiat Falls. My wife love wading the small water and casting to small trout near the Spruce Grove campground. It’s beautiful up there, and we rarely encounter any other anglers.
