During Free Fishing Weekend, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife vehicle access passes are also not required.
Outside of this weekend, Discover Passes cost $10 for a day pass and $30 for an annual pass. An annual freshwater fishing license is $29.50 for those ages 16–69 and $7.50 for those 70 and older. Licenses for non-residents cost $84.50.
