A typical meeting includes club business, an hour-long program, refreshment break, and trip reports. Past programs have included a "name that lake" slideshow, biology and status of Dolly Varden trout, impact of the Elwha Dam removal, backcountry GPS, and a preview of the fish management plan for the North Cascades National Park - plus trip reports and a cookout in the summer months.
