CLOSURE OF FORT BRAGG AREA TO ALL RECREATIONAL SALMON FISHING

 CLOSURE OF FORT BRAGG AREA TO ALL RECREATIONAL SALMON FISHING
 SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Marine Fisheries Service and California Department of Fish and Game today announced the closure of all recreational salmon fishing in the ocean from Horse Mountain (about five miles north of Shelter Cove in southern Humboldt County) to Point Arena (in southern Mendocino County), effective Thurs., midnight, July 16, 1992.
 This salmon closure is due to the attainment of the 3,400 chinook quota agreed to prior to the beginning of this season's fishery.
 The 3,400 chinook quota was implemented by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce to protect Klamath River fall chinook stocks, which have been seriously depleted in recent years.
 Recreational fishing for salmon will resume in this area on Tues., Sept. 1, 1992, and continue through Sun., Nov. 15, 1992. This later fishery will have no quota.
 Ocean recreational anglers should be aware that a similar quota- driven closure for the north coast north of Horse Mountain to Humbug Mountain in Oregon is likely to be triggered within a few days.
