Rufus Woods boat launches

Post by Dave M » Thu Jul 20, 2017 3:34 am

Can anyone tell me if there is a fee for launching from the reservation side? Looking at the coyote creek launch. I haven't been able to find anything on the Colville website about fees other than a tribal permit for fishing from shore.

Not sure about Coyote creek but Seaton Grove is free but does not have a dock, the launch at Chief Joe is also free and has a great dock. If I am ever unsure about a fee I just go someplace else. Good Luck

If the coyote creek launch you are referring to is the one near the net pens it is free but you need a wdfw access pass. Its been awhile since i have used it but i recall it being shallow so if you have a large boat i would use seatons grove. Good luck put there.

Pretty sure it requires a Tribal permit to launch there. When I first researched available launches and before the State had a reciprocal license agreement with the Tribes I was told by Colville Fisheries a tribal Permit was required to launch there. And then they said none was required at Seatons Grove.

Thanks for the info. That is the one I was asking about. We already changed our plans anyway and are going to Baker lake instead.
