           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 the Home Page for the fishing regulations
                     for the right times to drop your line.
                                         Thank you for visiting
