Prompted by lower than normal stream flows, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife has closed all fishing on the Chehalis River Tuesday until further notice.
WDFW also closed fishing on South Fork Chehalis River, North Fork Newaukum River, South Fork Newaukum River and Skookumchuck River.

“Streams and rivers where spring Chinook hold and stage through the summer are experiencing lower-than-normal stream flows,” according to WDFW. “Low stream flows decrease holding and staging refuges and elevate vulnerability and pressure on these Chinook. Any encounters of spring Chinook could subject these fish to stress, injury, or death.”
