Seattle Fishing

Seattle Fishing

Seattle is perched on the Pacific Ocean and has sweeping views of Puget Sound and Mount Rainier. This port city has been home to many rock stars and bands including Alice and Chains, Foo Fighters, Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and many more. Enjoy the views, jam out to some tunes, and experience what Seattle fishing has to offer in the rich waters along the coast and up into the mountains.

Anyone interested in Seattle fishing will probably be interested in Salmon. Salmon is an iconic species in the Pacific Northwest, and it is known up and down the coastline thanks to its migratory habits. Although Salmon thrives in salt water, these fish spawn in the freshwater inlets. Every year, Salmon runs up and down the coast, and anglers from all over the world come to cast their lures. Salmon in Seattle is common in the summer with peak months of June and August. Anglers frequently target with success Chinook, Coho, and Sockeye Salmon.

Another popular species for your Seattle fishing excursions is Halibut. Halibut is a springtime fish, and it can be found in the salt water of the Pacific or Puget Sound. There are also many Lingcod, Rockfish, and Sculpin in these waters. In the summer, local fishermen also like snagging Dungeness Crab.

As for freshwater options, Seattle does not disappoint. Rainbow Trout (Stealhead) and Cuttroat Trout are popular options, but there also lots of good Catfish, Crappie, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, and Yellow Perch in these waters. Notable freshwater sources in Seattle include Green Lake, Lake Sammamish, Lake Washington, Lake Union, Snoqualmie River and the Duwamish River all nearby.
