A new month has dawned and with it comes a fresh opportunity in central Puget Sound (Marine Catch Area 10), San Juan Islands (7) and the Strait of Juan de Fuca from Sekiu to Port Angeles (5 and 6) for salmon anglers.

Hatchery chinook become fair game, and while the daily limit is two salmon it also offers a chance to hook a “trifecta of salmon” that includes coho and chum during this month-long fishery that last until Oct. 31.

In central Puget Sound some of the more popular places include Jefferson Head, Point Monroe, Kingston, Richmond Beach, Allen Bank off Blake Island, Southworth and Manchester areas. The daily limit in central Sound is two salmon, and you must release wild unmarked chinook.

In the Strait look for action to occur off Sekiu, Freshwater Bay, Port Angeles and Sequim. The daily limit in the Strait is two salmon and only one may be a chinook.

In south central Puget Sound the regulations also change this month when anglers are allowed to catch and keep all chinook with a daily limit of two salmon.
