Salmon

Typical Season: July-April

Puget Sound harbors five unique types of Salmon; the legendary King (Chinook), Red (Sockeye), Silver (Coho), Pink (Humpy) and Chum (Keta). The most prominent species in these waters is the King Salmon, which can be fished for nearly year round. The winter fishing targets the Blackmouth Salmon, an immature King that is on its way out to sea.

Rock Fish

Season varies by conservation regulations

Unfortunately, rockfish stocks throughout this region have shown drastic declines in the past 25 years. Species such as quillback, copper, black and yelloweye used to be plentiful, but they are now severely depleted. They can still be fished for at times and are a great fighter!

Bottom Fish

Season varies by species

You’ll find that many of these cold water creatures are quite ugly and some resemble prehistoric creatures. They can be very aggressive and put up an exciting fight. These fish can be caught by jigging the bottom or casting into the rocky shoreline.

Anacortes Fishing History

Salmon canning capital of the world!

Anacortes was known as the salmon canning capital of the world. Fidalgo Island Packing Company was one of the largest salmon canneries in the world!

Back in the day, it was common to have 50 seiners and 60 gill-netters tied up off the docks. At times, there used to be over 5000 fishermen in Anacortes.

The banner year for Anacortes was 1913 when 39 million salmon were caught creating more that $3 million worth of business that year.
