Lake Wallula stretches from McNary Dam upstream to Priest Rapids Dam on the Columbia River and upstream to Ice Harbor Dam on the Snake River. Salmon and Steelhead fisheries are listed in the Washington and Oregon Fishing Regulations but may be opened or closed by emergency regulation changes. See Washington and Oregon Fish & Wildlife websites for updates before fishing for these species.
There are numerous well maintained boat launch facilities in the Columbia River from McNary Dam upstream to Richland. Above Richland, primitive launch sites are located at Ringold, Parking Lot 7 (Hanford National Monument), and Highway SR-240 (Vernita Bridge). There is one developed (concrete) launch at Wahluke (Hanford National Monument).
