Welcome to the
Washington State Bass Federation

Message from The W.S.B.F President :

Out of an abundance of caution and the uncertainty as it relates COVID-19 impacts to our “Open-Air” sport of bass fishing within our state I wanted to take the time to address a few concerns.

 As it stands today W.S.B.F will postpone all official meetings and the gathering of groups of anglers until further notice including the 2020 HS Championship scheduled for March 21st on Lake Washington.  It is our full intentions to maintain an optimistic outlook towards our sport of Bass fishing. Obviously safety has always been a number one priority with all of our events with the WSBF venues and that will never change on my watch as your president.

I spoke with WDFW Bruce regarding our fishing permit for Banks Lake Jamboree event scheduled in May on Memorial Day. He has confirmed that our permit is still currently VALID FOR USE.  Therefore as today WSBF still plans to conduct our annual event on Memorial Day as we have for the past 50years. You can expect the event to be much different than our traditional dealings in the past. We most likely will not have an open BBQ & Breakfast for a large group of participants. We will most likely not have a raffle and open speaking ceremony gathering like we done in past to the associated risk factors. However I can predict an environment in which an angler can Fish on the lake and weigh your fish afterwards and simply depart back to your Hotel, Camp sites, etc. As a group we will have further in depth conversations to work any and all details of how we can “KEEP WASHINGTON ANGLERS FISHING “in 2020.

Listen guys, my thoughts and prayers go out to each of you and your families as try our very best to maintain our day to day priorities. Please know that your State President will be doing my very best to keep our organization functional. I don’t have all the answers at this time and I cannot predict what neither the next 30 days nor the next 3 months will look like as a nation. I personally refuse to concede to the mentality of living in fear as I am faced to make discretional decisions every single day no different than the rest of Americans our nation. If anyone has any questions or concerns feel free to email me directly or Contact me via Cell phone.

God Bless Everyone:

WSBF President : Dez Ruffin
