Hierarchy of Washington regulations?


Active Member
Fished a certain section of a certain river near a cliff named after a bird of prey. Lots of posted signs about said section being "catch and release". I caught a couple nice fat stockers which I would loved to have kept, but since the signs said "catch and release", I let them go. Later, I check my fish Washington App, and it says that only wild trout are catch and release. I checked the emergency regs website and saw nothing about said river. The regulations of this area have changed quite a bit in the last several years. Don't know what to believe.

Is the app really supposed to be up to date?

The reg's on that stretch have changed significantly over the last several years. As I recall there is a date window involved. I'd trust the signs and the printed regulations. Haven't fished it in 6 or 7 years (or more).
