State launches new guide for Washington fishing vacations

If you’re hoping for an outdoorsy vacation around Washington this year, the state Department of Fish & Wildlife has a new online guide that might help in the planning.

The agency has launched “Great Washington Getaways,” an interactive web guide to 14 areas across the state that offer scenic wonders and finned lunkers. Good places to fish, in other words.

Click on a map of Washington and find details for each area, including where to fish, what to catch, and tips on where to stay, with online links to state parks, public campgrounds and nearby visitor information services. Locations include Southern Coast, Northern Coast, Lower and Mid-Columbia River, Ross Lake, Methow Valley, Yakima River, Cheney area, Hells Canyon, Mount Adams, Potholes Reservoir, Tucannon and Snake rivers, Lake Roosevelt and the Selkirk Mountains.

“This new feature is designed for both Washington residents and visitors from outside the state,” Bruce Botka, WDFW’s community outreach and public affairs manager, said in a press release. “I’ve lived in Washington for more than 30 years, and I know our readers will discover fishing, camping, and vacation opportunities they didn’t know about before.”
