Fly Fishing Puget Sound for Sea Run Cutthroat
Puget Sound is Washington’s most expansive and diverse fishery with well over 15oo miles of shoreline to explore. Native Coastal Cutthroat trout reside in these salty waters and are available throughout the entire year. Chum and Pink salmon fry enter the saltwater igniting a feeding frenzy beginning in late February which begins the baitfish season in the Sound.
