Fishing Guide Advisory Group

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) formed the Fishing Guide Advisory Group in 2019 to engage guides from throughout Washington State, increase communication and transparency in management, and get feedback on critical fisheries management decisions that have impacts on the industry. One of the group's first tasks will be to help advise the agency on the new guide logbook system in order to make it as simple and user-friendly as possible while preserving the Fish and Wildlife Commission's goals of gathering critical data on where and how guide businesses operate in Washington.

At the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, we celebrate diverse individuals who bring a wide range of perspectives. All are welcome to participate in our processes regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, status as a veteran, and basis of disability.

Mission statement

The Fishing Guide Advisory Group provides recommendations to the department with the objective of:

  • Increasing communication and quality of information shared between WDFW and the guide industry, and 
  • Providing local expertise and advice to the department in order to support sound management decisions and sustainable fishing opportunities.
