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.

Most of the nets I see, were under the bridge, which would still be in the open area.

I was wondering about this closure too.

The closure is up at the confluence, not at the bridge in deming near IGA... THis is between the north fork/south fork confluence to the highway 9  bridge... In reality it's a deep section that does hold fish at times and there is usually a tribal shore net that's anchored there..... Don't know how many times its been cut up or left on the shore but but i hear this may be one of the reasons...
