Welcome to 2023-24 Washington Fishing

2023 Washington Fishing Regulations Cover

New for 2023-2024

Fish requiring a catch record card (sturgeon, salmon, steelhead, halibut) and all shellfish now require a license to be harvested on Free Fishing Weekend, June 8-9 in 2024. These species could previously be harvested without a license during Free Fishing Weekend. All other rules still apply, including seasons, area, lure or bait restrictions, size and catch limits.
