Top three Washington coast hikes

1.) Flattery Trail — Makah Reservation, Neah Bay; 1.5 miles round-trip with a gain of about 200 feet. Easy hike.

There are plenty of places to snowshoe and cross-country ski

YAKIMA — The cross-country ski trails at Tronsen Meadow on Blewett Pass, with the sprawling view of the Stuart Range from the ridge, or the equally majestic vistas of the Goat Rocks to the west from Maintenance Shed Road at White Pass.

Trout and salmon numbers good along the Columbia River

The snow has made it really tough to plan a trip to go fishing anywhere. It is very frustrating, as the rainbow and kokanee fishing is great at Lake Roosevelt and the steelhead fishing on many spots on the main stem Columbia and the Wenatchee Rivers should be excellent.

Winter hiking at its peak as New Year approaches

DEPOE BAY, Ore. — One of the greatest privileges of living in the Pacific Northwest is the knowledge that whales, those largest and most magnificent of mammals, are often seen off our coast. And while winter and spring can bring their share of headaches, those seasons also are some of the best times to spot gray whales as they migrate past shores.

Prime time for skiing

Another powerful weather system brought plenty of snow to the Cascades with some ski areas already topping the century mark for total season snow accumulation.

Fishing open at Swift Reservoir

SEATTLE — The fishing season at Swift Reservoir in Skamania County has been extended and will remain open through December.

If you’re interested in connecting to the action in near real time, check out the Facebook group, Elite Skiing. You will find a steady stream of content, updated rapidly and continuously by a large and diverse group of snow sport enthusiasts.

Device helps find deer that have been shot

Like a scientist experimenting with one of his new innovations, Dennis Steinman scanned his wooded backyard with an electronic receiver until the back of the device lit up.

WDFW invites public to help identify priorities

OLYMPIA — State fish and wildlife leaders are asking people to share their views on the values and priorities that should drive the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife over the next several years.
