Action: Close Upper Wheeler Reservoir to all fishing.
Effective dates: Effective immediately.
Species affected: Trout and all other game fish.
Location: Upper Wheeler Reservoir, located approximately 11 miles southwest of the town of Wenatchee (Chelan County).
Reason for action: Public access was obtained for this season through a temporary Land Use Agreement, thus Upper Wheeler Reservoir could only be opened to “fly fishing only” under an emergency rule change. This rule has expired.
