Marine Area 13 (South Puget Sound) encompasses all waters south of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. These waters are protected from the weather, which enables small boat access for fishing. There are also great opportunities to fish from shore and at various piers. Area 13 is the only body of water in the state where you can fish for salmon year-round and use your two-pole endorsement. Try fishing with a bobber and anchovy for chum salmon to entice a strike! During odd years additional pink salmon can be kept each day to allow anglers to keep a few more fish for the grill or smoker. Winter resident salmon fishing is a unique opportunity to catch salmon in the 'off-season' and typically runs from October through April. Though you can catch sea-run coastal cutthroat trout in all marine areas, Area 13 can boast to be one of the best spots to fish from both a boat and shore, especially during the chum (fry) run from March-May.
