Dear Washington Angler,

Licenses for the 2010 license year (April 2010 - March 2011) will be available for purchase beginning December 1, 2009.

In April 2009, the Washington State Legislature passed into law the requirement beginning April 1, 2010, that any person 15 or older wishing to fish for salmon or steelhead on the Columbia River or its tributaries must have a Columbia River Salmon and Steelhead endorsement in addition to their fishing license. The cost of the endorsement is $8.75 (all fees included) and can be purchased at a license dealer or online (https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov ). The endorsement is good for the license year. Revenue from the endorsement will be dedicated to supporting salmon and steelhead fisheries in those areas.

For more information about the Columbia River Salmon and Steelhead endorsement and to view a map that shows where the endorsement is required, please visit http://www.wdfw.wa.gov/licensing/crss_endorsement/
