The area below Rocky Reach Dam is a favorite area for fishing
and boating. We want anglers to continue to safely enjoy
the area for many years to come. Public safety and security of
the dam require that areas within 400 feet of the dam be off
limits to boats and those fishing from the river bank.
State law* makes it unlawful to fish within 400 feet downstream
of man-made dams, which includes Rocky Reach.
This image below shows the areas below the dam
that are safely available to those enjoying the river.
