Marine Area 8-2 is located within Port Susan and Port Gamble north of a line from Possession Point to Shipwreck. Marine Area 8-2 provides good fishing opportunities for small boats and shoreline anglers that want to fish for bottomfish and both migratory and resident salmon. There is a small Chinook fishery that starts in late May/early June and runs through the summer in the Tulalip Bubble. During odd years, an additional two pink salmon can be kept which gives new anglers one more incentive to get outside and on the water. Winter resident salmon fishing is a unique opportunity to catch salmon in the 'off-season' and typically runs from November through April.
Anglers who plan to fish for salmon in Canadian marine waters and return in their boats with their catch to Washington are required to notify WDFW before leaving state waters.
