With over ten different lakes, Bellingham Bay and the Nooksack River to choose from, Bellingham is a fisherman’s paradise. Schedule your visit by time of year to find your dream catch or check out our list of fishing locations to see what’s open and active.

You can see a list of Whatcom County's lowland lakes here, and also get pertinent information from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
