Puget Sound Fishing

       Trolling or jigging for that elusive Puget Sound Salmon is what "Life in Des Moines" is all about. Whether you are trying to catch that big 30 pound Wild King Salmon or that beautiful Bright Silver it is definitely a rush. We have many days of fishing, in the spring and summer there is the Chinook run and fall brings the Sockeye, Coho, Chums and Pinks. But wait the year is not over in the winter there is the Winter Blackmouth. But don't get in trouble check below for the fishing regulations for the right times to drop your line.
