Recreational fishery samplers with the Puget Sound Sampling Program collect catch and effort information each week at fishing access sites (ramps) throughout Puget Sound. These reports summarize results from angler interviews.

PLEASE NOTE: Creel report information is based on sampling of access sites (ramps) only and may contain catches from other Marine Areas. Please check the fishing regulations at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations/ for more information on current fisheries open in Puget Sound.
