WDFW will be adding an additional stamp for steelhead and salmon anglers, in addition to their steelhead and salmon catch card beginning in April 2010. This fee will affect those wanting to fish on all Columbia River tributaries and the funds raised are to support the “evaluation of selective fisheries in the Columbia River Basin. Funds will also be used for other management activities, including fisheries enforcement, data collection and monitoring.”
Total cost after dealer fees will be $8.75, and only authorized license dealers will be able to sell them, or you can purchase one online.
