State and tribes still at impasse on salmon fishing seasons; all of Puget Sound closes on May 1


For the third time in less than two weeks, talks between the state and tribal fishery managers broke down to develop a joint plan for salmon fisheries in Puget Sound, and an unprecedented closure of sport fisheries is looming in marine areas after April 30.

“We had one last round of negotiations in hopes of ensuring salmon seasons in Puget Sound this year,” Jim Unsworth, director of state Fish and Wildlife said in a news release. “Regrettably, we could not agree on fisheries that were acceptable to both parties.”
