|WDFW Annual Survey of
Wolves in Washington – 2015
The survey confirmed the
presence of at least 90 wolves in
18 wolf packs with a total of
eight successful breeding pairs,
reflecting the continued growth
of the state’s wolf population.
Wildlife managers note that the
actual number of wolves in the
state is likely higher than those
confirmed by the survey.
| Hunting Permits for
Wild Horse Have Changed
PSE has updated the
process for issuing hunting permits
and non-hunting recreation
permits at Wild Horse.
Hunting permits are now administered and issued by
WDFW through their Hunt by Reservation Program.
PSE no longer issues permits for hunting at the Renewable
energy Center (visitor center). All hunting permits are
issued on-line. WDFW expects to have the wind farm
listed on their site by late April/early May.
Non-hunting recreation permits (hiking, bird-watching, etc)
are issued by PSE on their website or in person at the
Renewable Energy Center (visitor center).
Information about both hunting and non-hunting recreation
permits can be found at PSE's website.

Free Fishing Weekend - June 11 and 12
During these two days, no license will be required to fish or gather shellfish in
any waters open to fishing in Washington state. Also, no vehicle access pass or
Discover Pass will be required during Free Fishing Weekend to park at any of the
nearly 700 water-access sites maintained by the Washington Department of Fish
and Wildlife (WDFW).
Anglers will not need a Two Pole Endorsement to fish with two poles on selected
waters where two pole fishing is permitted. Anglers will also not need a Columbia
River Salmon and Steelhead Endorsement, otherwise required to fish for salmon
and steelhead in the Columbia River and its tributaries.
"If you haven't fished for years, never fished in Washington, or want to
introduce fishing to someone new to the sport, this is the weekend to get out
there," said Larry Phillips, WDFW inland fish program manager.
