    July General Meeting -- Everyone Welcome

     

    PSA Sno-King Presents

    PSA President Ron Garner on catching Chinook from Puget Sound and Westport

     

    The Puget Sound Chinook opener is coming up, followed by our club's Westport outing. It makes sense to have a local with serious fish killing credentials teach us how to "get good" at finding and attracting these epic fighters onto our hooks.

    Ron will talk about the gear, baits, lures, structure and all of his secrets of success for catching big Kings!

    If you are planning on participating in the very short
    Puget Sound fishery or are heading to the Coast, this would be a great meeting to attend for new fishers and salty-dogs alike.

    Like always, we have some great raffle prizes including a members only prize and a grand prize anyone can win!

    Our meetings are free and open to the public, no membership required.

     
    Coming from work hungry?  We've got you covered:
    Pizza, Hot Dogs with chips and soda

    CHARTER FISHING

    Westport has the largest charter boat fleet in the state. All you need is a fishing license and the price of admission for world-class salmon or tuna fishing:

    If it were me, I’d probably pay a little extra to go on a six-pack boat or better yet a 4-pack, but all these boats produce well when the fish are in. Also, look for the faster boats. A 12 knot boat is 50% faster than an 8 knot boat.

    Bottomfishing is always a sure-thing and rockfish and ling taste better than salmon (IMO;-)

    My top recommendation for a party boat is Captain Kevin on the Gold Rush

    DAILY REPORT FROM THE CHARTERS

    Typically private boats trolling do better than the big party boats mooching.

  • Mission Statement

    WHO WE ARE

        We are the Puget Sound Anglers.  We are dedicated to preserving quality fisheries.  We believe in the de-commercialization of Steelhead.  We believe that our salmon resources can be restored with sound biological management.  We believe in the comradeship and wishes of fellow sport fishing anglers.  We believe our grandchildren can have a higher quality fishery than any of us ever had.

    HISTORY

        In 1985 a small group of sport fishing anglers became unhappy with the organizations to which they belonged.  Although they enjoyed the friendship and knowledge of persons with the same fishing interests, they were fed up with the state and national leadership using the members as rungs on their own political ladders.  They were tired of their dues going to pay for salaries on the national level and for enhancements thousands of mile away.  They were tired of being refused the right to give input on legislative issues that involved their fisheries.  It was time for a change and thus spawned Puget Sound Anglers.

    MISSION

        The Puget Sound Anglers  us an organization of independent chapters, with common goals and interests, bound only by integrity and fellowship, with the goal of preserving, protecting and enhancing the sport fisheries of Washington State.
        The general outline of the organization is for each chapter to remain an independent nature.  The State Board was formed with members from each of the chapters and is responsible to those chapters.  The State Board is to assist in forming new chapters and promote membership.  In addition, it is to help communications among the chapters regarding fund raising and projects of interest to all.

    RESULTS

        There are now 17 Puget Sound Chapters throughout western Washington.  This is the fastest growing sport fishing organization in the state.   Members have been involved in stream enhancements, raising salmon, educational forums, state legislation, fishing for children and even assisting developmentally disabled persons catch their first fish.  We are now being quoted in newspapers, and interviewed by radio and television reporters.  Media response to Puget Sound Anglers has been overwhelming, and the organization is rapidly becoming known as the "Voice of Washington's Sport Anglers".

    BENEFITS

        In addition to the previously mentioned projects, all members have a chance to learn more about fishing, go on organized outings, take part in projects and build life-long friendships. 
        Each chapter has a monthly general meeting at which fish stories are discussed, guest speakers are provided and there are even raffles to give you a chance to add to your tackle box.  The membership outing may have you fishing in your back door, south of the Mexican border or north towards Alaska.  All paid members will receive a monthly copy of The Reel News.  This newspaper is the communication vehicle for all serious sport anglers in the state.  It provides you with the chapter information, educational fishing information, new products, recipes and information that is vital to your sport.

    ATTENDANCE

        We invite non-members and guests to attend our general meetings.  We highly encourage all family members to join us at any of our meetings, outings and other happenings.  We even welcome members of those "other clubs" to attend one of our meetings and maybe, just maybe, they will want to add their names and support to the independent organization of The Puget Sound Anglers.
