2017-2018 Catch Report Time

Washington State Catch Reports are due April 30, 2018. Here's everything you need to know...

Your catch report card is due on April 30, 2018.

You didn't lose it, right? Well if you didn't fill it out and mail it to the WDFW:

WDFW CRC Unit 600 Capitol Way North Olympia, WA 98501-1091

If you lost it, that's ok, you can write it all down and mail it in or you can email it to them! Email WDFW at and include:

The WDFW has a handy guide for how to provide your catch report in PDF format.

Now if you caught nothing or didn't fish this year (sorry about that) you still need to report your catch. But it is still very important that you report even if you didn't catch this year. Without good data, it throws off all the research and good research leads to a healthy fishery.

If you also crab, you can get more information on that over at WDFW Catch Report.

Be sure to report your catch and then head back to to find a new beautiful lake or river you've never fished before.
