Host of the world’s most famous fish market for a reason.
The Pike Place fish market is one of the most famous fish markets in the world, and it could only be in Seattle. The amount of fishing options around this great city are endless. Whether you want to head out into the Puget Sound for salmon, halibut, and cod or hike up into the mountains after trout and steelhead, a fisherman will not be disappointed by the Emerald city.
The Puget Sound is situated in an almost perfect climate for fishing. It’s sits in a buffer zone between the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade mountain range, providing Seattle with a year-round temperate climate that keeps the average temperature in prime fishing range. Rarely dropping below 40 in the winter and above 80 in the summer, the weather in Seattle is ideal for a fisherman.
After fishing, kick back at some of Seattle’s famous seafood restaurants or grunge rock bars. For fun, you can watch the salmon as they run through the Ballard locks, up the fish ladder and through observational windows.
