Washington to consider creating two new fishing license types


OLYMPIA — The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission will consider on Friday creating two new sport-fishing licenses.

The proposed Fish Washington license is intended to simplify recreational fishing licenses and endorsements by allowing resident anglers to purchase an all-inclusive annual combination license with all the endorsements at a discounted price,

The Fish Washington license would include freshwater and saltwater fishing plus the two-pole, Columbia River salmon/steelhead and Puget Sound crab endorsements.

Buying the items separately would cost $87.65, while the proposed Fish Washington license would cost $79.62.

The other license would be a combination fishing (freshwater, saltwater, shellfish) for Washington residents age 70 and older.

It would cost $19.05.

The nine-member commission will meet Friday and Saturday in room No. 172 of the Natural Resources Building, 1111 Washington St. S.E. The sessions begin at 8 a.m. Friday and 8:30 a.m. Saturday.

Also on the agenda are new catch limits for trout in Lake Roosevelt and a review of draft budget and policy proposals for the 2017 legislative session.

An agenda for the meeting is available online at
