Fishing Port Townsend and Family Adventures
Peninsula Sportsman offers a variety of Port Townsend Fishing, Port Townsend Crabbing and Wildlife Watching / Sightseeing Charters.
Port Townsend and the Olympic Peninsula offer plentiful fishing opportunities. This area of the northern Puget Sound is alive with a variety of species that will challenge your skills as an angler. Cold water reef fish such as the delicious and hard fighting Lingcod, Rockfish / Sea Bass and Pacific Halibut are abundant in the Strait of Juan de Fuca and our charters specialize in the exciting sport of light tackle fishing for these species. Coastal Sea-Run Cutthroat Trout are a unique native fish and along with resident coho/silver salmon provide consistent saltwater and estuary fly-fishing opportunities throughout the year. Admiralty Inlet and nearby Hood Canal is well known for its pristine waters and plentiful shellfish. Enjoy your time on the water exploring our local beaches and tide pools for all sorts of Pacific Northwest marine creatures and gathering fresh Clams and Oysters. Spend a day setting out Dungeness Crab and shrimp traps and exploring the area for the abundant coastal wildlife and spectacular Northwest scenery.
Our charters are based in Port Townsend, launching conveniently at Fort Worden State Park or the Port Townsend Boat Haven. In Spring our charters focus on fishing for a variety of Bottomfish ( Lingcod, Halibut, Rockfish, Seabass, Cabezon, Flounder and others ) , Spot Prawn and Clamming trips. In the Summer we offer Wildlife Watching / Sightseeing Charters, combo Bottomfish/ Crabbing or Shrimping charters during local seasons and Coastal Bottomfishing trips to the outer Washington Coast.
