Makah National Fish Hatchery raises Chinook salmon, coho salmon and steelhead for release into the Tsoo-Yess and Wa’atch rivers. Freshwater sport and tribal fisheries in the Tsoo-Yess River benefit from the fish reared at the hatchery. The fishery is typically open from the end of August through the end of February. All fishing on the Tsoo-Yess River requires a tribal license. Visit the hatchery to watch the spawning, which occurs from mid-September through the end of December. Please call ahead to confirm the schedule. Phone: 360-645-2521
