In accordance with Governor Jay Inslee’s extension of the “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order, all state lands will continue to be closed to the public through May 4.
WDFW Director Kelly Susewind said, “We know many Washingtonians find great solace in spending time on the water or in the wilderness, and we are taking these painful steps only because of the urgent need to protect the health and well-being of our neighbors and communities. We ask for your patience and compliance because there are lives at stake.”
Please stay home and stay healthy. You have a role in saving lives in your community and statewide. We wish for you and your friends and family to stay healthy too, so that you can return to the waterways and lands we all value when it’s safe to do so.
We anticipate sharing additional fishing and hunting season announcements on Monday, April 6.
