Oregon Fishing

A big, sprawling western state with fir-clad mountains and rustic desert scenery, Oregon fishing offers an unbelievably diverse experience. Every part of the Beaver State has something unique for the angler, and unlimited diversions for those that don’t fish. The western half of the state is home to ocean fishing and trout, but is best known for its legendary runs of salmon and steelhead. The eastern half is home to high desert and pine-covered mountain ranges and is world-renown for its trout fishing.

Washington Fishing

Washington fishing takes a back seat to few places on earth. Even though it is a populous state there are regions of Washington that are incredibly remote, and some of its salmon and steelhead runs rival those in Alaska. The Puget Sound area offers everything from sea run cutthroat to rockfish to blackmouth Chinook, while a few hundred miles east the North Cascades offer stunning scenery and hike-in adventures for high alpine trout.

Seattle’s Urban Charms

Metropolitan Seattle is surrounded by fishing of many kinds, and has everything a big city can offer in nightlife and entertainment, as well as restaurants, major league baseball and football, and the popular Pike’s Place Fish Market. Washington fishing in the Puget Sound includes rockfish, Chinook, silver and pink salmon, as well as crabbing, clamming, and sea-run cutthroats in Lake Washington.

Local rivers such as the Skagit are not only known for their fishing, but for the incredible scenery they flow through.
