Fish, Crab, Shellfish

What better way to take in the natural beauty of Hood Canal than to spend a quiet afternoon fishing. No boat? No problem, there is great seasonal crabbing and fishing right off our docks! Enjoy area oyster and clam gathering year round, and coho and chinook salmon fishing in the fall. View Fishing License Information.
