Some friends called me about fishing Buffalo Lake. This is a wonderful place to fish, for rainbow trout, triploid rainbow, kokanee and largemouth bass. The lake is about 10 miles from Grand Coulee Dam and is on the Colville Indian Reservation. While I had them on the phone I talked them through the license process. First, I said, go to the Colville Tribe’s Fish and Wildlife website. Under the Mission Statement paragraph click Regulations and Permits. You will see a link in orange, and that opens the page that has the form for getting your fishing licenses, use permits and launch permits. You can scroll to the bottom of the page to view the fishing regulations and the fee details. Have your driver’s license handy and the license plate of the vehicle you will be using when fishing on the reservation. You can buy a fishing license for one to seven days, or an annual. You must also purchase a Reservation Use Pass. One day permits are $20 and an annual is $80. Launch fees are $10 per day. You can also get a two pole permit per day or annually. Buffalo is just one of the quality lakes on the Colville Reservation.
