Every year as we get closer to spring, I will start to hear talks around the Wenatchee Valley of the different recreational passes available to be able to fish, hike, hunt, so on.


Do we actually know the differences between each pass?

and if not, how do we know...

Which Recreational pass is right for us?

All very solid thoughts. We spend so much on gas just to get to these places to begin the adventures, we don't want to spend money when we either don't have to or maybe we don't need the permit/pass after all.

Before you decide to take that adventurous hike, or find that favorite fishing hole, ask yourself...

Do I have the right Pass for this?

Fines and Fee will not compare.

If you are maybe the type to say, "ah I'll just pay the fine."

Ya, don't do that, you'll end up spending way more than you ever thought or intended to.
