Fishing license endorsements

Puget Sound Dungeness crab endorsement: This endorsement can be added to an annual combination or shellfish/seaweed license for a fee of $8.75 (or $3.80 for a 1-3 day Combination license) and allows you to harvest Puget Sound Dungeness crab. Separate catch record cards are required and come free with the endorsement. There is no fee for those 14 and younger, but the endorsement and catch record card are still required.

Columbia River salmon and steelhead endorsement:  As of July 1, 2019, anglers are no longer required to obtain an endorsement to fish for salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River Basin.

Two-pole endorsement: This endorsement allows anglers to use two fishing poles on most freshwater lakes, ponds, a few sections of certain rivers, and a few marine areas. You must have a fishing license in addition to the endorsement. There are about 90 lakes where you cannot use two poles (PDF), and you cannot use two poles in most rivers and marine areas. All anglers who want to fish with two poles require this endorsement except on Free Fishing Weekend.
