Default If you fish in Washington State here's a web link YOU NEED.

This is the link to the Washington State Fish and Game folks. Those guys chage thre rules more often than I change my shorts (well, almost true). Like Oregon, if you sign up they'll just come into you as e-mails. Here's the lastest one:

WDFW FISHING RULE CHANGE
Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife
600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091
Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife

May 22, 2013

Daily limit and fishing area increase
for hatchery spring chinook at Wind River

Action: Daily limit increases to 2 chinook or hatchery steelhead, or one of each. Opens the river upstream of Shipherd Falls.

Species affected: Chinook and steelhead

Effective dates: May 23 through June 30, 2013

Locations:

Wind River from mouth (boundary line/markers) to 400 feet below Shipherd Falls.
Wind River from 100 feet above Shipherd Falls to 400 feet below the coffer dam.
Wind River from 100 feet above the coffer dam to 800 yards downstream of Carson National Fish Hatchery.

Other information: Daily salmonid limit is 2 chinook or hatchery steelhead, or one of each. Release all trout other than hatchery steelhead. Release wild chinook downstream from Shipherd Falls. Minimum size 12 inches for salmon and 20 inches for steelhead.

Night closures and anti-snagging rule will be in effect from the Burlington Northern Railroad Bridge upstream. Only fish hooked inside the mouth may be retained.

The two-pole rule continues to be rescinded for 2013.

Reason for action: Carson National Fish Hatchery is expected to meet its escapement goal of 1,500 fish. Surplus hatchery origin fish are available for harvest.
