This is skill-based per angler and regulation dependant, but we do our absolute best to have you give you as many opportunities as possible.

We do not want to surprise you with any information when on the water. Most of the fish we chase, with the exception of Coho Salmon, we are targeting for Catch & Release. Keeping fish is regulation-dependent, so please check with us to make sure fish retention is available.

If fish are allowed to be retained, they will be processed for you after your trip and placed in Ziploc bags. Please note that ice and coolers for transport are your responsibility.

You will need a fishing license to fishing on any river in Washington, with the exception of a river within a National Park where you only need the required free catch card.

You can purchase a Freshwater Salmon & Steelhead fishing license and free catch card from most local sporting stores, Walmart, or Fred Meyer stores.

If you have more than 10 days before your scheduled trip, you can go online to Wa Dept of Fish & Wildlife. Here, you can purchase and print out your fishing license, however they will mail out the manadory free catch card which can take up to 10 days to receive.
