fishing regs
« on: July 04, 2021, 03:16:23 PM »
Are the new fishing rules only available on line?  Sportsman Warehouse doesn't have them.  Fred Meyers has none either & they said you have to go on line to get them.  I normally keep one in the boat & one or two at home for easy reference.  I printed out the special rules for rivers that I fish but I'm not about to print the whole pamphlet.  However, without having it to thumb through it would be easy to miss something that is pertinent to where you fish.

Walmart was just waiting for them.  Online or on your phone is the best bet.

What's the deal with the third party website that looks like garbage and is tough to use?  You used to be able to just grab the PDF on WDFW, apparently that was too easy.

Yes it’s Garbage.  :bash:
I drove to Olympia and took part in a survey for the reg book a couple years ago.  I told them over and over it takes too many clicks to get to the information you need.  So they made it worse.

Glad to see I'm not the only one.  What on earth did they do?  All I wanted was to print 2 pages and it took me forever just to find the file to open.

My work does the same thing. Whenever they say ‘update’ or ‘improved’ everyone cringes.

Based on reading and following 30 years of Navy, DOD and Aerospace documents I can confidently say our fishing regs are absolute garbage.

WDFW saving money, good for environment especially since printing cost and paper is expensive this year. So no paper regs this year or likely the next few years a savings of 6 plus figures for them and another inconvenience for us and trying to follow their weekly and daily "special rule changes" should be fun once again LOL.  Does any other state change the rules every week like WDFW?

Just be careful of the printed regs as far as salmon rules go.  I'm not sure what I can do.

If you are fishing salmon I would suggest checking more than once a week.

The wdfw web app sucks....  I don't trust the crap online much.  They really need to at least get a pdf published.
