What the West Coast Drought Means for Washington Fisheries [VIDEO]

Washington snow drought ‘worst we’ve ever seen.’ 

Washington state’s snow pack level is 17% percent of normal measures, and many rivers are now hitting record lows. That will have wide-ranging consequences on everything from fishing to wildfires in months to come.

Take a look at the news report.

Most of the river is a result to rain, rather than snow melting. This snow drought is the worst officials have seen in the last 25 years.

A trout hatchery needed to pump well for the first time in 7-8 years and Fish and Wildlife must create a contingency plans for a water shortage.

Salmon fishing is also under threat due to lower waters.

Hopefully, everything will pan out for Washington anglers.
