    One of our teams (6 people) at work want to do a salmon fishing outing for team building and asked me if I know of charters or guides for Puget Sound area, potentially beyond like Neah Bay. They aren't experienced fishermen and certainly don't fly fish. It'll need to be gear oriented. I don't know gear guides and also am a DYI person anyway. Any recommendations? Thx!

    I don't know if he guides out there, but Mike Ainsworth of First Light Guide Service could take care of you guys out on the sound. http://www.firstlightguideservice.com/

    He is on Facebook as well and is a great guy! He does gear and fly fishing, so contact him for more info. His cell is (206) 817-0394.

    Yes Captain Keith does fly trips on the sound and has been since 1994. But I am fully booked until September.

    Also recommend Mike Ainsworth and Capt. Keith, both can fish gear or fly. For a trolling trip, Gary Krein at All-Star Charters does a great job.
