CDFW announces fishing closure at the mouth of Klamath River

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has announced that the spit fishery at the mouth of the Klamath River will close to angling at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 27.

Based on CDFW projections of the recreational fall Chinook salmon harvest, anglers will have met the “spit area” adult fall Chinook salmon quota of 15% of the total Klamath River Basin allotment by that time.

Meeting the quota triggers the closure of the spit fishery at the mouth of the Klamath River, within 100 yards of the channel through the sand spit formed at the Klamath River mouth.

The spit area is downstream of the Highway 101 bridge located near the town of Klamath. All recreational fishing will remain closed there for the remainder of the 2021 season.

Anglers may keep track of the quota status of open and closed sections of the Klamath and Trinity rivers by calling the information hotline at 800-564-6479.

For more information regarding Klamath River fishing regulations, please consult the 2021-2022 California Freshwater Sport Fishing Regulations at www.wildlife.ca.gov/regulations.
