Ocean clave:

If Neah Bay is going to have restrictions on Sunday fishing, then there are two options:

1) we fish Fri and Sat at Neah Bay, then do some spey fishing on the nearby rivers on Sunday

2) we base camp out of Sekiu which has good camping, facilities and easy access to fish right out front in Clallam Bay

Sekiu is not closed Sunday (I believe) and has widely available boat rentals but booking them requires some advance planning. Neah bay has the better fishing and is the original site for the clave, but it seems that it will be a Fri-Sat only fishery.

We need to get an idea of what a reliable date might be wherein (a) the season is sure to be open and (b) we'll have decent numbers of fish to chase. We will also need to be sure we can lock in dates for campsites and boat rentals for those who do not have a boat of their own.

Do we have a volunteer from western WA to post the regulations for Neah Bay and Sekiu this season?
