Sockeye salmon fishing opens on Baker Lake

SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. (AP) — Anglers will have the opportunity to ply the waters of Baker Lake for sockeye salmon beginning Saturday. The season continues until Sept. 7, as a sufficient number of sockeye have been transported to support a lake fishery, the State Department of Fish and Wildlife said. The Puget Sound summer crab fishing season is underway. Locally, four areas are open Thursday through Monday until Sept. 7. San Juan Islands/Bellingham will remain open until Sept. 28. For those who prefer freshwater, the statewide Trout Derby continues through Oct. 31.
