Sea-runs are our primary target, but silver salmon (coho salmon), pink (humpy) salmon and king (chinook) salmon are by-catch and catch and release. They all cruise the Puget Sound shallows in search of food. Sand eels, euaphisids and herring are a few staples of these anadromous species. Wading the shallows, casting and retrieving baitfish patterns is challenging, but has great rewards.

In the summer, the mountain streams of the Puget Sound rivers are a great way to get away from the heat of the city. Wading the river is often required, but those looking to explore will find some beautiful places around Western Washington State. Those learning the ropes will be taught basic casts to make them as effective as possible.

The best way to get your money’s worth is to come prepared on a guided trip. Casting lessons from Arch Anglers or your local shop will greatly increase your chances of playing and releasing a photo worthy fish. We will travel to anywhere in Western Washington to meet with your friends, family, students or corporate get-together. All we need is a field or gymnasium with lots of room for all attending.
