Reason for action: The Yakima/Klickitat Fisheries Project managers (Yakama Nation and WDFW) are using the two main gravel pit ponds at Easton to acclimate and release hatchery-reared coho salmon smolts this spring.The temporary closure of the ponds is necessary during the smolt acclimation period. Both ponds will be stocked with catchable trout before reopening.
