    I'm looking to go Coho/nook fishing for one day on the North Fork river and i'm an Oregon resident so i'll need to purchase an out of state day pass. I was wondering if I already have my Columbia River Basin Endorsement on my Oregon fishing license, will I still need to purchase the same Endorsement for a Day Pass?

    If your crossing the bridge and fishing in WA, you will need to purchase all new licenses from WA fish and game.

    At least that's how I read your question.

    I understand that, what I am curious is when I purchase a day pass. Will I still need to purchase a Columbia River Salmon/Steelhead endorsement as well? Seeing that Oregon has Columbia River Basin endorsement(equivalent to washingtons salmon/steelhead endorsement). Would I have to purchase a seperate one for Washington, if I already have my Oregon one? As Columbia River Tributaries are all connected.

    I'd be willing to bet you need a new endorsement on the WA Lic, but I could be wrong.

    The hotline for that stuff has been pretty fast to answer in the past, I'd give them a call before some Fred Myer employee tells you something wrong while you buying your Lic.
