Located on the Northern point of Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula, Port Angeles has Olympic National Park as a backyard and the Pacific Ocean as a front yard. It’s one of the most beautiful places in the world and paradise for fishing.

One note: Washington is very protective of its waters, so we recommend that if you’re visiting Port Angeles, you contact a guide, so you are able to fish safely and legally. That said, here are some of the spots locals love to fish!  


The Juan de Fuca Strait is the body of separating the Olympic Peninsula from Canada’s Vancouver Island, and it’s teeming with fish and sea life of all kinds! While you’ll need a boat to fish these waters, the investment will more than makeup for it with the opportunity catch to cabezon, lingcod, Chinook salmon and more!


Actually a location in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, The Humps is the place to catch halibut! Halibut is one of the most delicious fish out there, so definitely make a point of trying to catch your limit of two fish per season. Details about the area available here!


Known for its steelhead, the Queets River is a rushing body of water teeming with trout and a perfect destination for fly fishing. Find out more here.


A county-owned park, Salt Creek Recreation Area, is a great place for camping, hiking, picnics, and digging for clams! There’s absolutely nothing like a feed of freshly caught clams, and this is a great place to do it. All it takes is a shovel, a bucket, and a little know-how, and you’ll have everything you need for a classic shellfish meal.
