Marine Area 9
ADMIRALTY INLET

Marine Area 9 (Admiralty Inlet) is located south of Partridge Point to Point Wilson, south and west of a line from Possession Point to shipwreck, north of Hood Canal Bridge and north of Apple Cove Point to Edwards Point Line.  This area provides both open and protected waters that can be easily accessed by small boats to target resident and migratory salmon and bottomfish from the Olympic Peninsula, Kitsap Peninsula, Whidbey Island and the east side of Puget Sound.  During odd years with the huge schools of pink salmon, a daily bonus limit will allow everyone to take home a few more fish.
