Puget Sound creel reports by year

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.)

For the most recent 15, 30, 60 days creel reports visit the recent reports page.

This is raw data and will likely change after undergoing the QA/QC process.
