Many anglers would travel to great lengths to access a fishery as varied and prolific as that which awaits in Snohomish County’s Seattle NorthCountry. But in this case, it’s all within easy reach in a region that begins just 15 miles north of Seattle, and stretches from the peaks of the Cascade Range to the shores of the Salish Sea.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Of course, with so much to see and do in Seattle NorthCountry it would be excusable if the rod and reel don’t make it into the luggage or car. But, there are plenty of guides and outfitters available and willing to rent everything from fishing gear to boats, or to escort you on a half- or full-day guided trip.
As a rule of thumb, always check local water conditions, seasonal restrictions, and regulations, check to see if you need a Discover Pass for parking, and carry a valid Washington State fishing license available from local outfitters or from the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife.
Recreating Responsibly is more than a reminder to stay on designated trails, to pack out what we pack in, or to minimize human impact on our natural resources and surroundings. To us, it’s a commitment to keeping Snohomish County and the region sustainable as both a destination and a home. As such, it’s our obligation to preserve and protect, repair and restore, and to leave Mother Nature in a better state than we found it. It’s a way of life for those of us who call this area home, and we ask and expect the same from those who visit. Please enjoy responsibly! -Thank You
