The city of Seattle, popularly known as the Emerald City, offers some of the best fly fishing opportunities in the state of Washington. Step on board your own private fishing charter in Seattle to quickly and safely get to the most breathtaking saltwater fishing locations in the world.
Surrounding Seattle, fly fishing is a year round activity which undergoes a change with every season. Steelhead is in one river or another almost every month of the year. Puget Sound provides a 365 days a year saltwater fishery for native sea-run cutthroat as well as Coho, Pink and Chum Salmon during the summer and fall months.
During the summer around Seattle, fly fishing opportunities can be experienced everywhere. You can spot native cutthroat and rainbow trout in the steelhead rivers, saltwater, lakes and stunning small streams. Below are just a few of the variety a Seattle fly fishing adventure can provide.
Yakima & Cle Elum Rivers – Home to Rainbow and Cutthroat – The Yakima and Cle Elum Rivers are the most popular rivers in Washington. One can spot trout here all throughout the year. Located an hour and a half from Seattle, both rivers offer a wide variety of fly fishing opportunities throughout the year for rainbow and native cutthroat trout, which you can catch by using dry fly, streamer and nymphing tactics.
Puget Sound – Home to Sea Run Cutthroat – Spread over 1500 miles, the shoreline is a must to explore. Puget Sound is considered to be the most expansive and diverse fishery region of the state of Washington. These salty waters are home to native coastal cutthroat trout and these can be spotted all throughout the year. Chum and Pink salmon enter the saltwater during late February. With it, begins the baitfish season in the Sound.
Mountain Streams – Home to Native Throat – The small and the lesser known stream littered around the Cascade and Olympic Mountain ranges are the true paradise for fly anglers. Light slow action rods are fantastic and novice anglers always enjoy a productivde time on these beautiful streams. Surrounded by old growth timber and clear water, these streams are home to native cutthroat and rainbow trout with panoramic scenic vistas.

Globally known for its size and fighting mannerisms, these fish species are spread far and wide all over the state.

Angle Lake – Home To Pan Size Trout – Angle Lake Park is a great spot for a family fishing adventure. Angle Lake Park offers playground equipment, a barbecue area, picnic shelters, and swimming beach with lifeguards. Unlike at Lake Washington where the anglers can try their hand at all fishing methods, Trollers use small flatfish in green or black, and green or red wedding-ring spinners. Bass, yellow perch or crappie also live in Angle Lake.
Green Lake – Hiding Place For Trout – Green Lake is Seattle’s recreational jewel. Although you might not catch an 8-pound trout here, there's a fair chance of landing several 14-inch to 16-inch rainbows and browns, with an occasional 3-pounder.
