Marine Area 13 (South Puget Sound) encompasses all waters south of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.  These waters are protected from the weather, which enables small boat access for fishing.  There are also great opportunities to fish from shore and at various piers.  During odd years (new for 2013), a bonus pink salmon daily limit allows anglers to keep a few extra fish for the grill or smoker.
