Recreation fishing opens in ONP

Olympic National Park on June 1 opened the following park waters to recreational fishing: Lake Crescent, Sol Duc River, Gray Wolf River, Dosewallips River, Duckabush River, North Fork Skokomish River and mountain lakes as per normal fishing seasons and regulations.

The reopening is part of a phased approach by specific geographic area.

Park officials ask anglers to practice responsible recreation and enjoy outdoor activities if they can do so close to home, while also practicing physical distancing.

The following areas within Olympic National Park will remain closed to fishing until further notice: Lake Ozette and the Ozette River; Dickey and lower Quillayute River; inter-tidal and marine waters; Bogachiel and South Fork Calawah River systems; Hoh and South Fork Hoh River systems; Cedar, Goodman, Kalaloch and Mosquito Creeks; Queets and Salmon River systems; Matheny Creek and Sams River; Quinault, East Fork and North Fork River systems, and Irely Lake.

Fish for free June 6-7

Anglers don’t need a license for fishing activities on June 6 and June 7. Representatives from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, however, is still asking everyone to remember to recreate responsibly for this year’s “Free Fishing Weekend” to keep their communities safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Anglers need to follow state guidelines and health advice for the COVID-19 pandemic by continuing to recreate in their local communities, traveling only with family or other members of their immediate household and practicing physical distancing by keeping 6 feet apart.

Rules such as size limits, bag limits, catch record card requirements (a fee is required for a halibut catch record card) and area closures will still be in effect.

Anglers should check ahead of time if their preferred destination or launch is open.

WDFW’s YouTube page ( provides “how to” fishing videos designed to introduce techniques to both new and seasoned anglers.
