Saltwater Fly Fishing

Our saltwater fly fishing is done off a boat, typically near the shorelines, in very shallow water. We fish both top-water and sinking flies, using both floating and sinking lines. This is not a beginner fishing method. This method is for intermediate or above casters, as casting distance and covering water is the key to catching more fish. Fly fishing is a method where you’ll be casting hand-tied flies and weighted line that match with a specific weight fly rod. A favorite method of experienced fisherman, saltwater fly fishing is just like freshwater fly fishing; you’ll cast and strip your line, and the further you cast, the more fish you’ll catch.

Captain Keith has been fishing on Seattle’s Puget Sound for over 50 years. He knows this area like the back of his hand, which means he knows the best shorelines and tide rips to maximize your experience. We target Sea-Run Cutthroat Trout year-round, plus Dolly Vardon, Steelhead, and different species of salmon including Coho, Humpback, Chum, and Chinook, depending on run timing.

Puget Sound fly fishing should be on your bucket list. And what better time to give it a try than during Seattle’s 16-hour long days of summer? Captain Keith Robbins and his team of Spot Tail Salmon Guides maintain extremely high fishing standards for tackle and equipment and use all Sage Fly rods and reels. Join our experienced guides for this unique and exciting fishing experience on the Puget Sound, just minutes from Downtown Seattle.
