    Much as I love throwing $5 bills around for nuttin, has anyone purchased their DP at a state park (vs. on-line or stores) -- do they also charge the additional $5 handling fee?

    Thanks

    As of last year unless they have changed it there was no vendor fee if
    purchased at their offices.

    I purchased mine last year at a state park with no fee.

    Passes sold at REI do not have an additional fee.

    Thanks Chad, good to hear there is one option other than the state parks (not many open this time of year). Will make a note to swing by REI next time we go to Tacoma.

    Even though this is labeled as a NFR it pertains enough to the act of fishing that I don't feel I'm violating my resolution oath by responding. freestoneangler, thanks for the inquiry, this is great information for everyone who fishes anywhere where the pass is required, which is pretty much everywhere.

    These guys gotta stop lobbing these easy pitches right across your plate. When I saw the words "Discovery Pass" I knew you'd be all over it like stink on shit!
