Loc: Philly via Puyallup
After growing up in Puyallup fishing and hunting all over Washington, I moved to Philly in 2003 for school and have been there since. I had to cancel plans to fish in Alaska at the end of our Alaska cruise because my brother was just diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer. So now I am in Puyallup from now until Saturday visiting family.

Although my brother is probably not up to fishing due to his recent surgery, I want to get out with my nephew for some fishing. Since being away, I am not sure the best option for salmon fishing for us.

Ilwaco, Westport, Neah Bay...salmon charter or combo salmon/bottom fishing charter? Any river fishing good right now? I haven't even checked the regs yet. We are pretty much open to any fishing. Cost is not an issue...just want some good fishing with a good captain or guide.

Please give me some suggestions so we can get out this week.

Thanks in advance for any info!!

Puyallup river is closed till this Thursday, water is typical of August...

Nisqually is going to get screwed due to the debris flow from the Tahoma Creek glacier on Rainier...

I have gone out with Deep Sea Charters twice this year. As a Local I have fished out of Westport for 50 years. Deep Sea is as good as any.
They all seem to be running North for 2 to 3 hours and coming back with limits of Hatchery Coho, very few Chinook and too many Native Coho to count. There are several charters at Westport but not like the old days.

+1 for Matt. Guy knows how to fish and you won't be in the middle of the crowd.
