Anglers may fish for Chinook salmon, Coho salmon, Steelhead trout, Rainbow trout, Cutthroat trout, and other cool water fish in accordance with Washington Department Fish and Wildlife regulations. A current Washington fishing license is required. This tract of land is accessible 24 hours a day. Pets are welcome, but must be under control at all times.
