For many anglers, opening day is synonymous with the start of the lowland lakes trout-fishing season, which gets underway April 28 this year. Hundreds of thousands of Washingtonians typically descend on trout-stocked lakes to kick off the state's biggest outdoor event. To prepare for the upcoming season, hatchery crews from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) have been working since last year to stock millions of fish in lakes throughout the state. Anglers can find how many went where at https://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/plants/statewide/. But anglers – and hunters, too – are also looking forward to a variety of other "opening days" for outdoor adventures this month, including: Columbia Basin lake fishing: Dozens of lakes in the Columbia Basin open to fishing April 1. Razor clam dig: A four-day razor clam dig is tentatively scheduled to begin April 19. WDFW will announce if the dig gets a green light about a week before the scheduled opening. Spring turkey hunt: The general spring turkey hunt opens April 15 for hunters of all ages and runs through May 31. See WDFW's Wild Turkey Spring Season pamphlet at https://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/regulations/ for more information. For most people, a valid 2018-19 fishing or hunting license will be required to participate in those activities after March 31, when all 2017-18 licenses expire. The exception is young people under age 15, who can fish for free. Licenses and permits are available online (https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov/), by phone (1-866-246-9453) and from sporting goods stores and other retail license dealers around the state. More information about outdoor activities coming up this month is available in the Weekender Regional Reports at https://wdfw.wa.gov/weekender/. These reports are updated throughout the month to provide current information about recreational opportunities around the state. Persons with disabilities who need to receive this information in an alternative format or who need reasonable accommodations to participate in WDFW-sponsored public meetings or other activities may contact Dolores Noyes by phone (360-902-2349), TTY (360-902-2207), or email (dolores.noyes@dfw.wa.gov).

Several fisheries are set to open in the weeks ahead, and the year's first general hunting season isn't far behind. With a new season of outdoor adventures about to begin, Washingtonians might want to consider purchasing 2018-19 recreational fishing and hunting licenses before current licenses expire at midnight March 31. The cost of fishing and hunting licenses remains the same as last year, and most annual licenses include a Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) vehicle-access pass. That pass allows people to use and park at more than 700 WDFW water access sites and 33 wildlife areas throughout the state. More information is available at https://wdfw.wa.gov/licensing/. Popular outdoor opportunities available in the coming weeks include: Columbia River spring chinook: The initial season for the popular fishery is underway below Bonneville Dam and runs through April 7, before closing for a run assessment. Fishing will improve throughout this month as a growing number of "springers" move up the big river. Razor clams: A two-day razor clam dig has been approved for March 2-3 at Mocrocks Beach, and an additional razor clam dig is tentatively scheduled later this month. For details, check the department's website at https://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/current.html. Eastern Washington lakes: Fishing opens March 1 at several lakes east of the Cascades, although some are still iced up. Check the regional reports for more information. Ocean bottomfish: Fisheries for many bottomfish species – including rockfish, lingcod, cabezon and surfperch – begin March 10 in most ocean areas. One notable exception is the lingcod fishery in Marine Area 4 (Neah Bay), which remains closed until April 16. Spring turkey: The general season opens in mid-April. The season follows a special spring turkey hunt in early April for people age 15 and younger. More details will be available soon on WDFW's website.

East Fork - 9:17 p.m. 12/4/2017
In days past you’d drive the East Fork along
the lower river and every pull out had cars. My
last drive found one guy flyfishing. Now that
they’re not planting the river it’s a great place
to practice your casting skills, but that’s about
it. Sad days for a river that had everybody
fired up for the Thanksgiving opener.
