Hunting
Chicamun Springs Ranch
Guided Bird Hunting excursions
At the heart of the picture-perfect valley rests Chicamun Springs Ranch. The springs that give the ranch its name lured the first homesteaders there. As they have since before the turn of the century, those same springs provide water to nourish fields of grain. The grain, in turn, sustains thriving populations of pheasants, chukar and quail.

Places to Fish around Twisp & Carlton
Methow River
Long noted for its steelhead fishery, the National Marine Fisheries Service in 1998 designated steelhead runs in the upper Columbia River Basin in danger of extinction, which precludes any scheduled steelhead season. Catch-and-release trout fishing is available in portions of the river during a June 1 through September 30 season, with selective gear rules in effect. Check the regulations pamphlet for boundary restrictions, which change (to expand the open area) effective May 1, 2006. Dolly Varden/bull trout fishing is prohibited to help improve numbers of these native char. Some whitefish action is available December 1 through March 31, as well as steelhead if the run forecast exceeds natural production and hatchery broodstock requirements. The steelhead fishery opens by emergency regulation, so check the agency website or with the Ephrata WDFW office in the fall. Disabled accessibility - Level 2; DP, WCT, Blk Tpa, level area. Camping is available but steep river banks are not very accessible to wheelchair users. There are several WDFW access sites along the river with toilets.
Pearrygin Lake
(212 acres) One mile northeast of Winthrop on the Methow Wildlife Area. Last Saturday in April through September 30 open season. Expect good fishing for 10- to 11-inch rainbow trout, plus carry-overs to 15 inches. State park facilities and a public access with launch and toilets are available. Disabled accessibility - Level 2 at the state park, with accessible camping sites and an accessible fishing pier.

Methow River From the mouth (Highway 97 bridge) upstream to the confluence with the Chewuch (Chewack) River in Winthrop: EXCEPT closed from the second powerline crossing upstream of the Highway 97 Bridge upstream to first Highway 153 Bridge north of Pateros: Selective gear rules, except it is lawful to fish from a floating device equipped with a motor, night closure in effect, and all steelhead with an intact adipose fin and steelhead containing a disk tag must be immediately released unharmed.
