2018 Nooksack section closure
« on: September 04, 2018, 07:03:13 AM »
Nooksack River, North Fork - Whatcom Co. from mouth to Hwy. 9
ALL SPECIES CLOSED WATERS.

From the SF confluence up to Highway nine is closed. Does anyone know why? This is less than a 1/4 mile section permanently closed for the year.

I was wondering the same thing myself. The section from the confluence of the SF down to the yellow marker at the bus barns doesn't open until Oct 1. This is probably to protect fish that stack up in that section waiting for higher flows to move into the SF. Maybe it's possible that there is a similar reason for that short section closed on the NF...but doesn't explain why all year long.
