WDFW Help



Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission has adopted rules that allow prospecting on ocean beaches. Do I need a permit from Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife?

Yes. The rules adopted by the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission allowing certain beach prospecting activities are in addition to WDFW’s permitting requirements. The most common methods for prospecting on ocean beaches is covered by the Gold and Fish pamphlet. If you need an exception to the pamphlet requirements you can apply for an individual Hydraulic Project Approval (HPA).
