Washington's excellent shrimp catches

Washington's local marine waters provide excellent shrimp catches, and in recent years the sport fishery has grown two-fold in popularity.
While the well-loved spot shrimp fishery has closed in all inland marine areas — except for another brief fishery in Hood Canal and the San Juan Islands — fishing for tasty non-spot shrimp have become fair game in some places.
South-central Puget Sound (Marine Area 11); northern Puget Sound-Admiralty Inlet (9); and Deception Pass, Hope Island, Skagit Bay, and Ports Susan and Gardner (8) are now open daily for coonstripe and pink shrimp. There is a 150-foot maximum fishing-depth restriction in these areas.
