    I moved away from that area a few years ago but I can tell you that Salmon & Steelhead are prodominant fish over there. They troll for em on the Puget Sound, once they run in the rivers they drift fish & bobber fish for em. Aside from that there are a mutitude of small lakes they stock with trout, course you could always get on the WA department of fish 7 wild life web page look up lakes & ponds in each county, will list species of fish in it. As of last year WADFW allowed a 2 pole licence on lakes & ponds, web site has a list of lakes & ponds that are exempt (do not allow 2 poles), they cost is double what a normal instate licence costs, also you have to buy saltwater licence if you plan on fishing puget sound , next year they are instituiting a fee for steelhead/salmon card, they are real seriuos about turning in your card wheather or not you catch any species that need to be logged. Hope that helps, I can tell you after Steelhead fishing this year I am totally hooked (pardon the pun).
