WDFW Stocking 47 Lakes With Trout in Western Washington For Spring Break

Bookmark and Share

All anglers 15 and older must have a valid fishing license to fish in state waters. Current licenses expire at midnight March 31, so anglers planning to fish beyond that date must purchase a 2013-14 license, available online (https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov/ ), by phone (1-866-320-9933) and from license dealers around the state.

Information about fishing prospects at lakes throughout the state is available at WDFW’s Fish Washington website (http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/washington/)
