Recreational fishery samplers with the Puget Sound Sampling Unit collect catch and effort information throughout the fishing season at selected fishing access sites throughout Puget Sound. These reports summarize the results from angler interviews which are conducted on a random sampling schedule. (Catch Area information was added to this webpage July 28, 2017 and is not included prior to that date.)

NOTE: THIS DATA IS PRELIMINARY AND WILL CHANGE AS MORE INFORMATION BECOMES AVAILABLE.
