In the State of Washington on the Snake and Grande Rhonde rivers salmon and steelhead fishermen, effective April 1, 2010, are required to purchase a new Endorsement that will cost $8.25. The Endorsement is required, along with a fishing license, for anglers 15 years or older when these rivers are open to fishing these species.
The following rules will be in effect for all species [includes smallmouth, sturgeon, catfish etc.] In all the open salmon sections on the Snake River during the 2010 season. Barbless hooks only, unlawful or any hook larger than 5/8 inch [point of hook to shank]. Night closure will be in effect which means no fishing of any kind from one hour after sundown to 1/2 hour before sunrise. This rule will cease when salmon season is closed on the designated river sections.
