The hatchery chinook salmon fishing season reopened Tuesday in south central Puget Sound, and catches were pretty good in the Tacoma area. About three-quarters of the anglers mooching cut-plug herring had the best success, and trollers using plugs and jiggers did well. Tatchell says most of the chinook were 6 pounds, but a good number were in the to pound range, and the largest was 21 pounds. Southern Puget Sound south of the Narrows Bridge is also open for hatchery chinook.

Puget Sound Saltwater
With all its inland waters, Washington has a dozen or more salty, back bay towns, home to artists, with a fishing legacy and cute beyond compare. That's because the Tacoma Narrows Bridge makes Gig Harbor a straight shot from the populous cities on the east side of the sound. First stop in Gig Harbor should be at the Harbor History Museum, an outstanding regional museum that is a showcase for local lore and modern culture.

Washington Saltwater Reports
These waters are protected from the weather, which enables small boat access for fishing. There are also great opportunities to fish from shore and at various piers. Area 13 is the only body of water in the state where you can fish for salmon year-round and use your two-pole endorsement.
