Wounded Veterans Fishing Program Cuts Trips Due to Closures

The Wounded Veterans Fishing Program out of Puget Sound is taking fewer trips this year.

During a normal year, the program takes out up to 200 veterans out fishing for salmon and other species.

The problem? Authorities from Washington state and area tribes can’t agree on how to share coho stock, which is at a low this year. That means that salmon fishing is closed, for now.
