San Francisco, CA -(Ammoland.com)- The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) announces the closure of the Klamath River Spit fishery as of Sept. 1.

By sundown on Sunday, Aug. 31, Klamath River anglers will have caught their sub-quota of 619 adult fall-run Chinook salmon below the Highway 101 bridge. This triggers the closure of the Spit (within 100 yards of the channel through the sand spit formed at the Klamath River mouth) to fishing as of the following morning.

Downstream of the Highway 101 bridge to the estuary will remain open for salmon fishing until the lower river quota of 2,064 adult fall-run Chinook over 22 inches is met. As of Aug. 28, approximately 1,219 of these fish have been caught. During this period, the Spit will remain closed to all fishing.

Once the quota is met, anglers may still fish but will have to release any Chinook over 22 inches.

The Klamath River above the confluence with the Trinity River will remain open until 702 adult Chinook are caught.

Fall regulations take effect on the Trinity River on Sept. 1. The quota on the Trinity River is 681 adult Chinook salmon from the confluence with the Klamath River up to Cedar Flat, and 681 adult Chinook from Cedar Flat up to the Old Lewiston Bridge.

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