Effective now through Feb. 15, anglers can fish Tokul Creek from the Fish Hatchery Road Bridge to the posted boundary marker downstream of the diversion dam fish ladder, for trout, hatchery steelhead, and other gamefish.

This section of the creek is usually closed through Jan. 15, but has opened early, since the Tokul Creek Hatchery has already met its egg collection goals for winter steelhead.

Allowed hours for fishing are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

The creek will close to fishing Feb. 16, 2018, to protect wild steelhead.

For more information, contact the Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Mill Creek Office, at (425) 775-1311.
