Fishing Permit
Fishing Monitor Duties & Responsibilities
In exchange for fishing privileges at Columbia Land Conservancy (CLC) owned Public Conservation Areas, the monitors’ responsibilities will include:

1. Helping CLC to keep the site clean and free of litter; especially bait cans, old line, and other fishing related garbage. CLC will provide you with trash bags if you need them.

2. Periodically assessing and spot checking who is fishing at the conservation area and accounting for any illegal or questionable activity. This would include fishing without a permit, failure to park in designated area, failure to carry a valid permit or fishing license, or anything else other than what is specified on the permit issued by Columbia Land Conservancy.

**Monitors do not have the authority to ask visitors to leave a site or to confront them, other than to provide info about the fishing permit program as a CLC ambassador. We ask that you observe and report, leave any policing to CLC and the local authorities.
