Go Fish: Washington state to allow some outdoor activities

Hunting, fishing, and even golfing will be allowed again in Washington state by early May, Governor Jay Inslee announced Monday in a press conference focused on outdoor activities during the pandemic.

The governor’s order relaxing some restrictions on May 5th comes with the stipulation that “appropriate safety precautions” must be taken while fishing, hunting, or golfing.

State parks and some public lands managed by the state will be open for day use only, restricting activities like camping.

The order also returns lands managed by the state Department of Natural Resources and areas under the control of Fish and Wildlife. This includes protected natural and wildlife areas that can be accessed by the public.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
