Hood Canal and Puget Sound Sea-Run Cutthroat Guided Adventures


Come Experience Fly Fishing on Hood Canal and Puget Sound with us!

Experience salt water fly fishing on Hood Canal with us!  Experienced anglers or brand new to the sport, we specialize in catering to anglers skill levels and helping you to learn this unique saltwater fishery on Hood Canal and Puget Sound in Hood Canal Fly FishingWashington State.  There truly isn’t a more beautiful experience in Washington State, where anglers get to fish in a saltwater environment for a wild sea trout at the base of the Olympic Mountain range.

Learn to Fly Fish With Us! –  Saltwater fly fishing on Hood Canal and Puget Sound offers a unique experience for anglers brand new to the sport of fly fishing.  In this open water environment, it is a great learning platform for anglers looking to hone their casting and presentation skills to aggressive Sea-Run Cutthroat.  Anglers looking to pursue the sport of fly fishing will find this experience as a great way to increase their knowledge of a unique world class saltwater fishery.

Light tackle fishing – this technique consists of using light tackle spinning gear (2-6 pd. test rated rods, and small thin diameter hooks for low impact on the fish) and light lures to pursue sea run cutthroat.  This is a great option to combine with fly fishing for anglers new to the sport of fly fishing or kids who are just starting out fishing.  Light tackle trips are catch and release, and the same low impact handling of the fish is applied using light tackle as it is with our fly fishing trips.
