Nestled in the fertile marine waterways of southern Puget Sound are a myriad of bays, inlets, estuaries, and beaches.

Within these confines, the sea-run cutthroat trout is a fish species often overlooked, but as other winter saltwater opportunities dwindle, anglers have taken notice of this exciting fishery.

According to the Coastal Cutthroat Coalition, a nonprofit organization, sport fishing for sea-run cutthroat in Washington generates more than 20,000 angler trips and roughly $1.1 million in economic value annually.
