WDFW: Two Poles Today!

Saturday, August 15th, 2009

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) announced earlier this week that starting today, August 15, anglers will have the option of fishing with two poles in the water on most Washington lakes. The result of a new law passed by the state Legislature, the two-pole endorsement option will apply to the majority of the 8,000 fishing lakes, ponds, and reservoirs in the state.

As is the case with most things that sound too good to be true, the two-pole option doesn’t come without its fair share of fine print. For instance, anglers wishing to take advantage of the new opportunity will be required to pay a $20 fee (in addition to the cost of a recreational fishing license). What’s more, the total cost for the endorsement will be $24.50 because of a 10 percent state surcharge, a 10 percent transaction fee, and a $.50 dealer fee.

Oregon: Free Fishing Weekend

Friday, May 29th, 2009

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) released more information about its Free Fishing Weekend that will take place across the state June 6-7. Free Fishing Weekend is an Oregon tradition — two days each year when the public is allowed to fish, clam, or crab anywhere in the state without a fishing license or tag. ODFW encourages adults to use this opportunity to take youngsters fishing. 

“Helping kids discover the benefits of fishing through events like this is one of our agency’s top priorities,” said an ODFW district manager. “This is a good time for people to get out and explore the wealth of recreational opportunities that Oregon has to offer right in their own backyards.”

Fishing is Still Good At Lake Luxembourg and Levittown Lake

Sunday, February 24th, 2008

Pennsylvania Fisherman – If you are looking for a couple of locations to go fishing over the next month or so, consider Lake Luxembourg and Levittown Lake. Both were stocked in December and January with trout (2,200 were recorded in the December release) and fishing in the area has been relatively light. Experts are saying there should be plenty of fish in the waters for fisherman able to get out there and try.

Lake Luxembourg is a 150 acre water source owned by Bucks County. Because it is part of the Core Creek County Park, there is a small access fee in order to use the area.  There is also no night fishing as the park as a sunrise to sunset curfew.
