If you chose to fish with service you might want to book a trip to for fish huge King (Chinook) Salmon that may reach 50 pounds in the fall. Although rare we do catch fish that are at that mark or very close every year. Our average Coastal Chinook weight is just about 23 pounds. Without a doubt these are my favorite fish to target.
Along with Chinook we would be targeting Silver (Coho) Salmon. They don't get as large but are know as much for their fighting ability as they are for table fair. These hard fighting great tasting fish average a solid 8 pounds with enough fish in the high teens to low 20's to keep thing interesting.
Throw the hard fighting Dog (Chum) Salmon into the mix and your arms may be tired at the end of the day.
Spring Chinook have become one of my favorites Salmon to fish for most say there is not a salmon out there that can compare to a fresh Spring Chinook on the barbeque. These fish begin their journey up our rivers in late March and continue into June. Spring Kings (Chinook) don't get as large as the fall Chinook but are every bit as strong if not stronger than their fall brothers and sisters. Known as being one of the toughest Salmon to catch, going on and off the bite several times a day, biting one kind of bait or lure one day and not wanting a thing to do with it again for days. We can help you learn to catch these magnificent fish.
In late July thru September of odd numbered years Humpies (Pink Salmon) converge on Puget Sound streams by the millions. These small hard fighting aggressive little salmon can be caught in huge numbers on light tackle in many streams within minutes of the Seattle, Tacoma, Everett areas. These fish are an absolute blast and are seldom a let down in numbers of fish hooked and landed in a day. Shear numbers equals fun for all.
Depending on where the fishing is best we could be fishing one of many rivers or lakes in the area, here's a list of a few.
Humptulips River, Satsop River, Wynoochee River, Chehalis River, Lewis River, Skykomish River, Snohomish river, Clearwater River, Snoqualmie River, Skagit River, Columbia River, Cowlitz River, Drano Lake , Nisqually and Green River.
