ladies and gentlemen,
in order to fish federal waters with a motor on a pontoon raft, even if it is under 10', the raft needs to be registered with the state like a regular boat. does anyone have a list of washington state "federal waters" handy? my assumption is that it is more than salt water. no state of washington agency has been able to answer this question.
i found that the army corps of engineers and coast guard have a 14-page listing of federal waters for washington. found under washington state navigable waters.
