Seattle Fishing Guide



Why Mooch for Salmon Rather than Troll?

Light tackle mooching is our specialty! This is a fun, active, hands-on fishing technique compared to trolling, which is passive.

On our Seattle fishing charter boat, you will actively work the bait at different depths. This type of fishing is intended for those who like to cast, hold their own rod and hook, and feel the fish bite! Experience a full-featured Seattle fishing trip with Captain Keith Robbins, Seattle's finest fishing guide.

Remember, most of the time the salmon stop the bait on the drop and you have to reel as fast as you can to catch up with them as they swim toward the surface. Mooching is a little more work but a lot more fun! By the time you get off the boat you'll be an experienced moocher.

What is Saltwater Fly Fishing?

Saltwater fly fishing is just like freshwater fishing with casting and stripping. This method is intended for more experienced fisherman.

The further you cast, the more fish you will catch. Captain Keith will take you to Seattle, Washington's best shorelines and tide rips. We target sea-run cutthroat trout, dolly vardon, steelhead, and different species of salmon (coho, humpback, chum, chinook) depending on the season.

It's great fun and if you like fly fishing it's a bucket list life event. Give it a try this summer!
