Free Fishing Weekend in Washington is this weekend (June 9-10), and is great time to take someone out and get them hooked on the sport of fishing.

On those days a fishing licenses isn’t required, nor is a Vehicle Access Pass (which comes with a fishing license); Discover Pass; Columbia River Salmon/Steelhead Endorsement; and a Two-Pole Endorsement.

State Fish and Wildlife reminds anglers that all other rules still apply, including seasons, area and lure or bait restrictions, and size and catch limits.

Catch Record Cards (first one is free) are required to fish for salmon, sturgeon, steelhead, and halibut. Check the regulation pamphlet for specifics or go to the state Fish and Wildlife website.
