Due to Drought state may close some rivers to fishing

If someone told you that in Washington, rivers will be closed to fishing due to drought you would probably think that someone is joking with you.
Well unfortunately the situation is that serious and this day has “finally” arrived. These days, fish managers are talking about the possible solutions when it comes to this subject and are discussing about the potential problems that may occur.

Some waterways such as the Naches River, the Little Naches River and other waterways will have daily closures beginning in the morning at ten o’clock.
People are quite surprised with this situation because they’ve been fishing for few years, some of them for few decades and they’ve never experienced something like this.
These decisions when it comes to fishing in Washington are definitely not easy to make, because it will affect many different areas in Eastern Washington and some people think that it will even affect Western part of Washington.

The reason for reducing fishing in stream conditions, warm-water and in low-water river is because fish is pretty much weakened because of these temperatures and of course low flows.
It means that they are really stressed out so it doesn’t matter whether the fisherman will release them or keep them, they will definitely be exposed to greater stress once they are caught.
That’s why people do agree with these decisions, because if they want to be honest enough they will admit that this drought is almost killing the fish, so that’s why fishing is not necessary at the moment.
